Becoming a professional counselor has been Linda Walker’s dream for as long as she can remember. Life experiences with a prior nursing career, years of volunteer work with families of critically and terminally ill children, and her own personal journey through the lengthy illness and death of her thirteen-year-old son, David, gave Linda the impetus to go back to school to become a counselor. Unable to transfer her outdated nursing school credits, she started college over as an adult learner with Freshman English—and it was worth it! She loves being a counselor. She loves helping people knowing that the Lord does not want us going through trying times alone.
