A life-long resident of the Garden State, Linda has served on the board of Celebrate NJ! A grassroots movement that builds pride in and fosters a brighter future for New Jersey through educational programs and promotional initiatives. Linda has written two books on the D&R Canal for Arcadia Publishing, as well as two children’s picture books.
