Linda was born and raised in Salt Lake.  She is a proud graduate of Salt Lake Elementary, Moanalua Middle, and Moanalua High School.  Public service has always been an important part of her life. In high school, Linda served as the student member on the Hawaii State Board of Education.  She represented all public school students in Hawaii, and advised the Board on issues facing the public education system with insight and perspective.  She was also active in the Hawaii State Student Council and the Interact Club, which developed her appreciation for the democratic process and volunteerism.  These experiences taught her that a quality public education is not just an option for Hawaii's keiki, but a necessity.

The value of education was reinforced upon Linda when she enrolled at Georgetown University alongside students from around the world.  There, she earned a degree in International Politics.  While in Washington, D.C., Linda interned for Congressman Neil Abercrombie where she gained policy-making experience on a national level.  During college summers, Linda returned to Hawaii to volunteer at the First Circuit Court and Honolulu’s Corporation Counsel.
