Born and raised in Northampton, MA, Linda attended Northampton schools and graduated from Northampton High School and Holyoke Community College. She has three children, Jared who is working for Sunbug Solar in Boston, Zachary who is working for Kringle Candle in Bernardston and Caleb who is attending Westfield State University. Her interests include all things outdoors, hiking, biking, walking and kayaking, that is why the Franklin Land Trust is so important to me. I also love auctions, refinishing furniture, art and cooking. My favorite vacation destinations are Stowe, Vt., and Cape Cod.
