Meet Linda

Hello, my name is Linda. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I moved to Oregon 33 years ago. I love it here! I’m recently single, have three grown children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.  

I am currently a full-time employee at Olympia Provisions. Recently, I was employed as a Child Development Associate with Head Start sharing over eight years experience of child development. I possess many assets and skills from previously working as a Parent  Coordinator, Teacher Assistant, and Student Bus Coordinator and learned to engage parents and children with special resources and services. Much of my experience involved social  services and time management to insure healthy family engagement and growth. Some of my hobbies are gardening and baking sweet treats for my family.  

Thank you for selecting me to receive a laptop computer. I will use it to apply for jobs online. I am also interested in continuing my education online. Having this laptop allows me to do all this!
