Linda was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas where she cared for many young children from the age of 10. Whether volunteering in a relative’s daycare center, babysitting or working as a camp counselor, caring for younger children became an almost everyday occurrence. Linda was introduced to animals later in life, but found her passion upon meeting her wife at the age of 21. Together the two have rescued, fostered and found forever homes for countless cats and continue to do so today. Since joining the ITD team, Linda has soaked up every aspect of dog behavior she can. She continues to learn as much as she can about dog communication and hopes to one day own and operate an animal sanctuary. Linda currently lives in Mentor with her wife, Jacey, their canine children: Lilly, Taquito and Gave and their family children: Philly, Gustav, Tank, Cream Cheese and Ducky.
