Linda moved to Arizona at age 12, taught herself to swim and was always in the pool when not out riding her bike through Papago Park. She played baseball, ran track, played volleyball, soccer and was a cheerleader in high school and college. She joined the Village and started playing tennis and eventually won the singles, doubles and mixed doubles club championships. Dance training in studios since age 35 was the start of a lifelong passion for musical movement. Boogie boarding with friends in Costa Rica, Mexico and California is one of her favorite vacations.
