Growing up in a Christian family in Carmel, Linda accepted Christ during Junior High Young Life Camp. She has 2 grown children: Katie, who lives in Monterey, and Robbie and his wife, who live in Carlsbad, CA. Linda earned her bilingual (English/Spanish) teaching credentials at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. Her experience as a public school teacher, children’s ministry director and mentor to foster children and youth on probation has given her a heart for guiding children towards a personal relationship with Christ. She feels blessed to serve young families and their children at Cypress Church.
