Hi, I’m Lynda and I was born in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans. My family moved to Bloomington-Normal, IL in August of 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. I attended Normal West and went on to attend Heartland Community College where I earned my CNA. Within the past 3 years, I’ve had the privilege to work with patients at Bloomington Rehabilitation, Heritage Health, and Bromenn gaining experience with patients in a wide variety of situations. Working here at HFAA has made a positive impact in my career and my mindset in the workplace. I love the amazing people I work with, and I look forward to meeting you and helping you walk comfortably on your feet again!
