- Author BiographyBy day, Linda is a Sales & Marketing Executive in the oil and gas industry. By night Linda advocates on behalf of people suffering from Arthritis. Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 31, she felt it necessary to learn all about this illness and contribute by elevating its profile within all levels of government and with the public at large. Linda is a member of The Arthritis Society and resides on both the National and Divisional Board of Directors. Nationally Linda is in the role of Director at Large and divisonally Linda is Chair of the Alberta & Northwest Territories Division. Linda also holds a Director-At-Large role with the Scientific Advisory Committee, a national committee focused on research initiatives for a cure. In 2000, Linda in conjunction with The National Arthritis Society was part of a group of arthritis consumers who created a national grass-roots advocacy organization called the Canadian Arthritis Patience Alliance whom Linda continues to advocate on behalf of today. In 1998, Linda in conjunction with The Alberta & Northwest Territories Division of The Arthritis Society was instrumental in developing a grass-roots advocacy committee called ACT, Arthritis Consumers Team. Still flourishing this committee's mandate is to improve the quality of life for people suffering from arthritis by addressing key issues like new medical treatment and services, the health care shortage, client outreach and support programs and public education and awareness. In 1999 Linda was invited to join the planning committee for Arthritis Rheumatism International and Action Against Arthritis, Taking Charge in the 21st Century held in Edmonton, Alberta. During this same time Linda also travelled to Slovenia with five other national volunteers to represent The Arthritis Society of Canada at a worldwide conference called International League of Arthritis Rheumatism.
