She comes to NorCal with over 25 years of coaching experience at the high school level - leading teams to league and North Coast section titles. Her NorCal teams have finished in the top 25 of Northern California and top 20 finishes in National Qualifiers.

Along with program development, Linda takes developing the individual athlete on the court, in the classroom, and within the community as a top priority (teams with league MVP's, college scholarships, and community service projects.) She works with individual athletes in private lessons as well as group lessons and camps. She is Gold Medal Squared and IMPACT certified.
