Lynda is an Arizona native born and raised in the Verde Valley. She raised her own family here after a few years of travel outside of Arizona. Lynda lives in the home that she and her husband raised their family in with their two dogs, Tilly and Dora along with a bevy of farm animals including cows, chickens and a horse named Wrangler, which she keeps for her Grandkids to ride.

Lynda has been a preschool teacher for 30 years and a director of early education programs for 25 of those years. Lynda started out at First Baptist Church, now known as Parkside in 1989. She left Parkside in 2011 as their director of their preschool, Los Ninos. At the time of her departure, Lynda was overseeing a staff of 12 with an enrollment of 85 children, which ranged in ages of 6 week old infants to 12 year olds. She had 5 classrooms and a full year program along with an afterschool program.  Lynda spent a year with Buena Vista Children Services as their director in 2011 to help improve and develop their Bright Futures sight in Cottonwood. After which time she moved over to United Christian School where she further developed their preschool program. She has been here overseeing a staff of 6 and has an active enrollment of approximately 60 children since August of 2012. The preschool program was a class of 15 in one mixed 3 & 4 year old classroom, it has expanded into a two separate class preschool with 21 students in each room. She also furthered the before and after school program and created a fun summer program
