Development Director

Linda came on board in November 2018. At Illinois State University, she spent one year directing an arts learning program for children through the College of Fine Art, followed by 17 years in development as Events and Outreach Director for public radio station WGLT. Prior to ISU, Linda spent 25 years as a self-employed artist, running a retail store and wholesaling her line of handmade jewelry throughout the country. Two years after Katrina, Linda spent a week in New Orleans with a group of friends framing a Habitat house and dreamed of going to work for them. She says, “I couldn’t be happier to have joined this amazing team that does such good in our community.”
