Linda grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee where she was part of Sequoyah Hill Presbyterian Church. In her teen years there she was an active member of the church adult choir and the handbell choir. Her college degree, from the University of Maryland,was a BS in Finance. In spite of that, almost all of what she is involved in now is music. Linda plays the flute and handbells and loves to sing. She directs the adult choir and handbell choir here at Springfield, as well as leading a handbell choir at Integrace Fairhaven retirement community and two community bell choirs. She loves to cook, bake, hike, travel and garden when not playing or lugging bells around.
