Linda Healow was raised in eastern NE and spent summer vacations with her family, camping in the mountain west.
She attended Montana State University, obtaining her BSN in 1977.
She has lived in Bozeman, Missoula, Helena, Choteau and Billings. Linda chose Montana for its large landscapes and sparse population, spending as much time as possible in wild lands, her favorite being the greater Yellowstone area.
She has worked in a variety of settings, enjoyed raising a family as an at-home mom, and has years of volunteer experience locally and serving in regional and national positions with a maternal child health non-profit.
Wild lands in Montana and Wyoming have been a source of renewal for her. With climate change's impacts taking hold, she is dedicated to protecting and preserving wild spaces, promoting wildlife migration corridors and recognizes wilderness as the gold standard for survival of ecosystems in the northern Rockies region and throughout the west.
