Meet Linda

I'm proud to be a native Floridian, the daughter of an Air Force officer and an elementary school teacher, raised with fundamental American values of love for our country and respect for hard work. My parents gave me a backbone, not a wishbone. I lost both parents when I was relatively young but continued to pursue my goals, putting myself through college and launching a successful international musical career. In addition to performance I've had the joy of teaching music to hundreds of children and adults.

When I was nearly 40 I went back to school to take the required courses to pursue a second career, earning my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2006. I’ve done my best to treat clients from all walks of life with empathy and compassion and to bring humor and a positive attitude to even the most stressful workplace.

Life is a gift. We can spend our time selfishly or choose to improve the lives of others. I believe in standing up for our neighbors who are less fortunate, less educated and less prosperous to make sure they are treated fairly and have every opportunity to succeed. I've experienced discrimination personally and professionally and am committed to fighting all forms of injustice and inequality. Though I'm new to politics I'm not new to public service, having volunteered for many charity organizations (for humans and animals) over the years. I hope to bring integrity of character and generosity of spirit to the Florida House.

"The arc of history only bends toward justice when many good people come together and pull."
- Dr. Linda Jack

Let’s work together to make progress for all!
