After graduating from West High School, in 1963, Linda worked department retail, married and has three children.
After living in Salt Lake City her entire life, Linda wanted a new adventure, and found it in retail management that took her and her three children to Grand Forks, North Dakota. There, she was the counter manager of Estée Lauder. Time and time again, Linda was number one in sales and this won her a trip to meet Estée Lauder and see the production site in New York City!
Linda was a go getter and wanted to start a side business. She visited the local bank to get a small business loan, and that was a day that changed her life! She found a supporter of her venture with the Vice President of loan department, Don Nordsven. Not only did she get the loan, she found the true love of her life!
