Linda served as an athletic trainer at The Ohio State University from 1975 until her untimely death. Linda became a student athletic trainer at Ohio State in 1971 and worked as an Assistant Athletic Trainer, Co-Head Athletic Trainer and Director of Rehabilitation Services for the Department of Athletics, all while completing her master's degree in physical therapy at OSU. Additionally, she had extensive international experience in women’s basketball and was involved in numerous national and local athletic training organizations.
A strong voice in helping to advance student trainer education, Linda was always ready to lend an ear and a kind word to help heal both the physical and emotional injuries to an incalculable number of student athletes and student athletic trainers. One of the greatest things a person can do with their talents is to share them with others and Linda dedicated her life to doing just that. She set an example for any person who wants to follow his or her dreams. She started out in 1971 with a dream and a lot of drive, through her hard work and persistence; she paved the way for those who will follow her. She was a teacher, leader and a role model for generations to come.

Anyone can develop cancer. We started this journey because cancer came into our homes and took away the ones we love. We are not alone. We understand a commitment to prevention won’t guarantee a life without cancer, but know every step we take is a step in the right direction.
The fight against cancer begins with a heartbeat, not a diagnosis
The path to prevention starts with you
Every day is an opportunity
