Linda's profession is teaching, and although she is officially retired, she still continues to educate. Now, she simply does it in a different setting! While most of her teaching career has been spent in Michigan, she has also had teaching positions in Japan and in Georgia.
Linda's passion is French, and as a French teacher she has taken many students abroad to immerse them in the language, culture, and history of France. Of course, travel in France must include exploring some of the world's greatest wine regions, and Linda developed an interest in vineyards and wines as a result.
Following her formal retirement, she and her husband Chuck relocated to Old Mission Peninsula. Linda lasted one year as a fully retired teacher, and decided she needed something interesting to do! She had become acquainted with Tom and Claudine Petzold – both part of the team at Bowers Harbor Vineyards – and decided that working at a winery might be fun and educational. Linda has become a “jack-of-all-trades” and done nearly every task at the winery. Most times, though, Linda can be found behind the register with a warm smile on her face.
