Charitable Giving Manager
Highland Dallas Foundation
Linda is the Charitable Giving Manager for the Highland Dallas Foundation, a supporting organization of The Dallas Foundation. Linda previously served as president and CEO of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, where she oversaw the development of Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. Before that she served as president and CEO of The Real Estate Council (TREC).
While clerking for federal judge, Jerry Buchmeyer, Linda witnessed public housing conditions in industrially impacted areas with rising poverty rates, increasing unemployment, limited or no health care or transportation options and poorly performing public schools. As a result, Linda has focused much of her professional and personal endeavors toward mitigating the lasting effects of segregation.
She enjoys the outdoors, particularly public parks, where everyone has equal access to nature and recreational amenities.
