Linda Finn, Area Director 

Linda Finn, a native New Yorker moved from Omaha, NE to Ohio eight years ago. She immediately loved the “small town” feel of New Albany and looked for an opportunity to get involved in the community. New Albany Bridges filled that need and she has been a consistent donor. Having the ability to remove barriers for our neighbors especially children is so fulfilling. Recently when approached with the opportunity to become an Area Director she realized that she could make even a bigger difference.
