Linda is a sister, aunt, and mother to individuals with different abilities. This experience led to her life’s passion and work on behalf of families with individuals with special needs. She worked in managed services for 15 years before her daughter “Jac”queline was born with Down syndrome. She then found her calling and worked for the Department of Children and Families, Federation of Children with Special Needs, Berkshire Hills Music Academy, Jewish Community Center Kehillah Special Needs Program, and Bureau of Exceptional Children and Adults. For the past 10 years, she and her daughter have shared their home with adults with different abilities through Mass Elder Care, Community Options, Nonotuck, and Pathlight. These experiences have prepared her for her return to Jericho as the Executive Director. Linda hopes to build upon the work of Fr Robert Wagner and Sr Joan Magnani by embracing their mission of the Bureau of Exceptional Children and Adults at Jericho being a place where All Are Welcome.
