Linda grew up Amish in the Fredericksburg area. The oldest in a family of 5 brothers and 3 sisters, Linda found her calling early in life after watching her grandmother suffer and die from congestive heart failure, for she knew she wanted to do something to help others.

She worked at the Walnut Hills Nursing Home for 10 years and also has been worked in private duty home healthcare for 8 years.
