Linda is the go-to lady for all things art production at Alaska Business. She uses her more than thirty years in the advertising and media community to create one-of-a-kind, stunning ads for print and the Alaska Business website. Linda has a wide range of leisure interests ranging from reading and watching movies (science fiction, fantasy, and historical dramas are her primary areas of interest) to gardening, and family research. Boating is an activity Linda has pursued throughout her life. She’s been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time on the water including canoeing and sailing as a child, crewing sailboats on Lake Erie and a catamaran in the Caribbean as well as cruising Prince William Sound for many years as part of the Whittier Coast Guard Auxiliary. Linda has called Anchorage home for more than forty years.
