Originally from a Chicago suburb, Linda Healy came to Normal in the 70’s where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at Illinois State University. Two years out of school, Healy turned her art degree into a career as owner of The Ram, a specialty jewelry/gift shop in Normal. She developed a line of handcrafted jewelry (professional name: Linda Isaacson) carried in galleries and boutiques across the country, as well as national retailers Nordstrom’s and Coldwater Creek.
Radio station of choice in her shop and studio? GLT.
Over 20 years later, Linda returned to ISU’s College of Fine Arts in 2002 as the director of Experiencing the Arts, a one-year grant-funded program of arts learning events for children.
Linda joined the GLT staff in 2003 to fill the Events and Promotions Director position, where she is responsible for coordinating the station’s fundraising special events.
