She was a fine dining manager for the Ritz Carlton Mauna Lani and Four Seasons hotels in Hawaii, California and Las Vegas. Working for five star resorts for over 10 years has given Linda the gift of not only meeting, but exceeding guest expectations. Following the resort business, Linda started her almost 10 year commitment in Sports and Entertainment as General Manager of Suites and Premium Services for US Airways Center and Chase Field, home of the Phoenix Suns and Diamondbacks. While working for Chase Field she also headed up the food services program for athletes in Salt Lake City during the Winter Olympics in 2001.
Linda spends a lot of her free time being the “perfect aunt” to her two favorite people, her niece and nephew. She has never met a stranger, only a new friend.
