Linda joined the FPCC staff in 2000.  Linda and her husband of 44 years Lynn have three adult sons Jeremy, Jamie and Justin and two grandchildren, Karlee and Miles whom Linda calls "the love of our lives."

According to Linda, the best part of her job is "being able to serve such a loving, caring and faithful congregation."  As Church Administrator, Linda oversees the financial ministry of the church as well as publications, correspondence, calendaring and generally keeping the trains running on time.  Linda is a leader in her field beyond the church through her work with the Administrative Personnel Association, a professional gathering of church business professionals in the PC(USA).

In addition to her work on staff, Linda has served two terms as an elder of the church, as a member of the Presbytery of Arkansas Coordinating Committee and volunteer with our congregational children's ministry in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and fellowship outings.  When she is not working, Linda enjoys spending time with family, photography, and scrapbooking.
