21 Questions With Linda Gates

by Jenna Martindale

I’m a little partial to this next newbie. She’s the class clown, way stronger than she knows, and she’s my Mom. I hope you have a chance to meet her & laugh with her because she’s on the same journey most of you may be on. And she’s killing it. (Blurry picture privileges because she buys my Christmas presents).
