Building community around film
Linda’s passion for film as a catalyst for community began when she started volunteering for the festival in 1994. During the following seven years, she served the festival in various capacities, including Programming chair and Operations chair, before being hired as the first executive director of the organization in 2001. Linda has led the organization through a period of tremendous growth and today RMWF has an active year-round presence.
Favorite Activities: traveling, hiking, and discussing films
Karen began volunteering for RMWF in 2007. She has spent her career in a variety of capacities including a technical writer for the power industry as well as a middle school math teacher.
