About Me

Linda Richter is a native of Pittsburgh and an avid Steeler fan, transplanted to Ohio some 18 years ago. She is the mother of two daughters, ages 26 and 18. She loves reading and movies--especially tracking which of her favorite books have made it to the silver screen. No matter whether she is working at one job or the other or dabbling in community activities, Linda's favorite thing to do is organize tasks, marshal resources, and keep projects on schedule.
