Before becoming a Food for Life instructor, Linda developed a healthy, low-fat, whole-foods, vegan mentoring program. Her personal mission is to help people regain their health and well-being through nutrition education and by showing them how to lead a lifestyle of compassion to promote both healthful eating and animal advocacy. She mentors her clients with grocery store tours to help them identify and make healthful eating choices. Linda supplies them with recipes and informational books from Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, Rip Esselstyn, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Michael Greger, and Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Monthly vegan potlucks and/or speakers and dine-outs are held to encourage a sense of community. Linda often lectures at schools, universities, churches, state agencies, and libraries. In addition, she teaches step, body sculpting, and Pilates at California Family Fitness and is a Personal Trainer.
