FACE | COMMUNITY MATTERS
Fundraising for the Future As we all know, saving the Horse Farm has been a long journey. Its significance is not only historic but the property is the last sizable undeveloped piece of land that remains in inner-Lafayette. While many in economic development see this as commercial opportunity, our community has stood its ground and elected to preserve the estate for Lafayette residents to enjoy for generations to come.
“We are going to have to rally again—this time to create the park we all want to see.” For years our community has been seeing “Save the Horse Farm” bumper stickers, yard signs, and t-shirts and we know the significance of the Horse Farm within our community, but what are we ‘saving’ it for? Well, essentially, this is an opportunity for us to create our own urban oasis, not unlike New York City’s Central Park, only with a distinct Acadiana flavor. Official plans are yet to be determined, however, there have been many wonderful ideas tossed around. Some of the ideas developers have been brainstorming include building an environmentally friendly amphitheater, bike trails connecting W. Bayou Parkway to Johnston 10 FACE | OCTOBER 2012
Street, equestrian demonstration areas, flower gardens, nature trails, and even an organic farm, the list goes on forever.
Meadow An Evening with Visionaries & Luminaries
Now that we know the farm will remain an institution within our community, it is important to realize that in order to make any of these great possibilities a reality, Lafayette needs your continued support. City-Parish President Joey Durel announced two activities that mark the official start of fundraising for the future of the Horse Farm. Moonlight on the Meadow: An Evening with Visionaries & Luminaries will be a gala held
By Flint Zerangue, Jr.
Thursday, October 25th. The goal of the gala is to raise $500,000 to give to the Community Foundation of Acadiana, the organization entrusted with fundraising and development of the park. The event will serve as an official beginning of the efforts concerning development of the property. Tickets for the gala will be $1,000/couple and can be purchased at www.cfacadiana.org/durel. On Saturday, October 27th, the Horse Farm will be open to the public for free. The mission of this event will be to raise community awareness for the Horse Farm and to highlight the level of community support that will be needed to turn it into the great park the community has expressed that it wants. In an interview, Joey Durel said, “The events in October are about bringing the community together to help us imagine the future of the Horse Farm. The community rallied together to save the Horse Farm. We are going to have to rally again—this time to create the park we all want to see.” Keep in mind that both events mark only the start of a string of activities that will benefit the project. If you can’t attend either, there will be future opportunities to get involved. However, if you wish to witness history in the making, show your faces on October 25th and 27th!

Breast Cancer and Genetics Are You at Risk? Genetics, family history and other factors may increase the risk of a person developing breast cancer. So, how do you know if you fall into that category? Dr. Tyshaun James-Hart, dedicated Breast Surgeon with Women’s Multi-Specialty Group at Women’s & Children’s Hospital helps women and men in Acadiana answer that question and others. The visit begins
with an examination followed by a one-on-one conversation with Dr. James-Hart, who focuses on detailed personal and family history such as how many sisters, brothers or other family members have had some form of cancer or have had a biopsy performed. “Ages at which family members were diagnosed will lead you in one direction or another to determine if the
person needs genetic testing or is at a higher risk for breast cancer,” she said. “However, not everyone is a candidate for genetic testing. Not everyone will be considered to have a higher risk of breast cancer.” Should you be considered at higher risk but do not have breast cancer, the next step is a modification of surveillance, Dr. James-Hart explained.

That is, the frequency of your mammograms and/or MRIs will need to increase in order to stay on the proactive side of breast cancer. “A woman may realize her mother, her aunt and her grandmother had breast cancer,” she said. “It may be only a matter of time before she, too, is diagnosed. With genetic testing and high risk assessment, we may be able to detect it when it is little more than a calcium deposit or prevent it all together. It’s a matter of being proactive.” Dr. Tyshaun James-Hart conducts bi-weekly Genetics and High Risk Clinics in her office on Thursdays. Appointments are required and the visit is covered by most insurance. Call 989-7350 for more information.
Facts About Breast Cancer • •
Louisiana is #2 in the nation for breast cancer mortality. More than 230,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States.
• When breast cancer is found early, the five- year survival rate is 98 percent. • Women in their 20s should begin to regularly check their breasts for changes. •
At age 35, women should get a baseline screening mammogram. If you have a history of breast cancer or breast cancer risk factors, speak to your physician about when to start your annual mammograms. Source: American Cancer Society

Quality, Compassionate Care for Generations An estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life. The alarming statistic from the American Cancer Society resounds in Acadiana where few can say they do not know someone – a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, co-worker or friend – affected by the disease. But Acadiana residents are not alone in their journey. With more than 100 years of combined experience at the Women’s Multi-Specialty Group; breast surgeons Dr. John Bolin, Dr. Reatha Williams and Dr. Tyshaun James-Hart as well as breast-dedicated diagnostic radiologist Dr. Philip Meyer provide a comprehensive plan tailored specifically for each patient. Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre knows the patients’ journey intimately. Elaine M. Junca is not just a name on the sign, she was a beloved colleague and friend. Diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37, Elaine entered remission after chemotherapy and other treatments. Five years later the cancer returned. Elaine lost her battle with breast cancer nine years after her initial diagnosis. She was 46. Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre continues the fight in her name, bringing accredited, quality breast cancer detection and treatment services. The breast imaging center offers digital mammography, the Aurora system for dedicated breast MRI and diagnostic ultrasound. The Women’s Imaging Centre holds several honors from the American College of Radiology including the gold seal for Breast MRI, Mammography, Stereotactic Biopsy, Ultrasound, Ultrasound Biopsy as well as designation of Center of Excellence in 2011.

Are You Dense? When asked about the density of their breast tissue, most women do not know how to respond. Breast tissue density is determined when a mammogram is performed. The density is interpreted by the radiologist when he views the images of the mammogram. The radiologist’s interpretation is subjective not quantitative. Breast density is categorized as:
• Category 1 • Category 2 • Category3 • Category 4
• • • •
Fatty tissue Scattered Fibroglandular tissue Heterogeneously Dense tissue Extremely Dense tissue
40% of women have Category 3 or 4 breast tissue density. Recent studies indicate that the sensitivity of mammography is compromised in Category 3 and 4 densities. Finding breast cancer at an early stage means a 20 year survival rate of 99%. Recently published data suggests that, for the dense-breasted women with few or no other risk factors, a supplemental breast ultrasound will find as many as 100% more cancers than is possible by relying on mammography alone.
Breast Center of Acadiana is proud to announce a new protocol that will be released by November 2012:
• • • •
All women who come to the center for a screening mammogram will receive information from a quantitative measurement (Volpara software) during their mammogram that will compute the density of their breast tissue rendering a number (quantitative measurement). The patient will receive a brochure explaining breast tissue density and the value of a screening breast ultrasound. Patient will be offered a screening breast ultrasound if her breast tissue is Category 3 or 4. Performing both mammogram and breast ultrasound on patients with dense breast tissue increases the chance of detecting smaller cancers earlier. Resources: www.areyoudense.org
Fight the Good Fight To fight the good fight against breast cancer, you need to arm yourself with the right tools. Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center offers a full range of breast cancer services with skilled specialists, advanced technology, and compassionate caregivers. St. Agnes Breast Center offers a fully comprehensive woman’s imaging center offering full-field digital mammography with CAD, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, stereotactic biopsy and bone mineral densitometry. By utilizing computer-assisted diagnosis, and/or breast MRI, St. Agnes can better serve women with dense breast tissue or women under the age of 40. As the first woman’s center in Acadiana to offer digital mammography, skilled and experienced technicians provide your results in the highest quality and delivered quickly to your physician. Dr. Alicia Rideau, the only female fellowship-trained breast radiologist in Acadiana is very involved with the care of |her patients often finding the smallest cancers for an early diagnosis.
As part of the Lourdes Imaging Network, St. Agnes is recognized by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Center of Excellence in Acadiana and an accredited MRI department. Our breast cancer patients are treated as part of the Lourdes Cancer Network. This alliance delivers individualized care and includes Louisiana Oncology Associates- an experienced group of board-certified oncologists and hematologists; OncoLogics, Inc.– the most comprehensive radiation oncology facility in Southwest Louisiana; Lourdes Imaging Network; in collaboration with the Lourdes inpatient cancer unit.

Keep It Local The goal of Komen Acadiana is to make a difference in breast health right here at home. The Acadiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure was started by local women in 1999 whose goal was to bring more awareness to breast cancer and breast health while raising money to support those already in the fight. Since inception, Komen Acadiana has donated $650,000 toward research to find a cure for breast cancer and has granted out $2.1 million to local nonprofits to provide breast cancer education, screening and treatment. As Louisiana still has the second highest breast cancer mortality
rate in the nation, Komen Acadiana is dedicated to making a difference in this statistic for our Acadiana area. There are thousands of women in our community who have been able to get the screening and treatment they need, but wouldn’t have been able to afford on their own.
Whether it’s through increased access to early detection through
subsidized screenings, or increased education, Komen Acadiana understands that the real impact it makes on the community is made one woman, one family at a time. Our tens of thousands of local supporters understand this impact,
which is why they have continued to support our mission year after year. But there is more work to do. You can do your part to help by signing up for one of our fundraising teams, then participate in the upcoming Race For the Cure which will be March 16, 2013. Registration is now open; sign up today.

It is a decision process during which you should evaluate all of your options, weighing the benefits and sacrifices of each. During these times, the right decision to reach your career goals may involve sacrificing pay, time with friends and family, and even leaving something you enjoy doing. Let’s face it, creating, maintaining, and expanding a successful career is a long-term journey, full of choices, sacrifices, and even some responsibilities that we do not necessarily enjoy. Yet, these sacrifices may often be necessary for progressing to your ultimate goal position and even the key to your personal freedom. One example of such sacrifices is the entrepreneur.

When you are in the position to do
work you do not enjoy or take on a role that is not what you were hoping for, push yourself to achieve excellence in your actions. Thus, you will be focusing on your effort to achieve excellence rather than what you do not enjoy about the task at hand.
Break up undesirable work into small time slots. Schedule time throughout the day to achieve unwanted tasks, rather than spending an hour doing only the things you do not enjoy. Great times to get these things accomplished are right before a lunch break and even the last 20 minutes of the workday as you will have something to look forward to after the task is completed.
Remain focused on the task at hand. Many of us waste countless hours re-checking our e-mails and surfing the web, making conscious decisions to procrastinate work that we should be completing. Recognize these procrastination techniques for what they are. Your choice will allow you to take ownership of your actions; therefore you will then be more equipped to make a conscious effort to eliminate the procrastination temptations that are deterring your success.

DEFEND YOUR BODY By Lanah j brennan, rd cde
Inflammation is an underlying factor that plays a major role in the development of many chronic diseases including arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cancer. Most of the time, inflammation plays a protective role and defends our bodies against infection. Sometimes, though, the inflammatory response doesn’t shut off, and the protective response can go from being good to being harmful. An unhealthy lifestyle contributes to that. Eating the wrong kinds of fats, having too much body fat, smoking, or being physically inactive are unhealthy lifestyle habits that leads to greater levels of inflammation.
Trans-fatty acids or partially hydrogenated oils increase inflammation. Check ingredients on your foods labels and limit the intake of processed snack foods, stick margarines and fast foods.
Plant based foods contain anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that have been shown to reduce the process of sustained inflammation. Include a variety of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Herbs and spices contain anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. Spice up your food with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and garlic.
A diet high in omega-3 fats will help your body fight inflammation. Increase your intake of omega-3 fats with fish, walnuts, ground flaxseeds and omega-3 eggs.
Eating charred, grilled, or burnt foods contain heat generated compounds called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that can increase the inflammatory response. Choose lower heat cooking methods such as boiling, steaming and slow-roasting to prepare foods.
High intake of sugary foods and refined carbohydrates has also been linked with increased inflammation. Limit your intake of foods containing added sugars and white flour.
Stress can worsen inflammation; manage stress by practicing relaxation techniques and exercise.
Fat cells release pro-inflammatory chemicals. Manage your weight by reducing empty calorie foods, monitoring portion sizes and increasing activity.

Chemicals from cigarette smoke are linked with increased production of freeradicals and inflammatory compounds; just another reason to quit.
Cherry, Oh! Recently, cherries have been getting more attention. There have even been studies that indicate cherries may relieve pain from arthritis and headaches, combat insomnia, reduce depression and potentially be a treatment for cancer.
Exercise can been beneficial in reducing your risk for inflammation. Incorporate at least 30 minutes of activity in your day.
Whatâ€™s So Great About Cherries? Both sweet and tart cherries are a source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants. But tart cherries have the added benefit of being a good source of vitamin A, melatonin and an even higher source of antioxidants.

FACE | GRACE NOTES
The Art of the Introduction The first impression you make on other people leaves an indelible mark. Think about the successful people you know who seem to move seamlessly through life. They understand the rules of behavior and are comfortable in their own skin, so they can relax and focus on others. Knowing how to properly meet and greet others is a lasting gift you can give yourself. It is a priceless asset that will positively impact your ability to navigate your social and professional relationships. Follow these Grace Notes to have the confidence you need to shine and sparkle in any situation, no matter what the setting.
“Governor Jindal, I’d like to introduce you to my business partner, Jan Swift.” •
Man to Woman: A man is always introduced to the woman. For example, “Mrs. Jones, I’d like to introduce you to my neighbor, Mr. Smith.”
“Knowing how to properly meet and greet others is a lasting gift you can give yourself.”
Basic Rules of Introduction
Always look at the person to whom you are introducing, and include an identifying phrase, such as “this is a friend of mine.” That way, if lightning strikes and you drop dead, the newly introduced pair can strike up a conversation.
Never use a first name, unless requested by the person to be introduced. In the South, we tend to think everyone is automatically our friend. Wait to be given permission to use a person’s first name.
Younger to Older: A younger person is always brought to an older person for an introduction. For example, “Mrs. Jones, I’d like to introduce you to Miss Smith. She’s my niece.”
• Less Important Person to VIP: Start with the most important person. For example, 28 FACE | OCTOBER 2012
Never command in an introduction. “Mr. Jones, meet Mr. Smith.” Never
repeat an introduction (“Mr. Jones, meet Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith, meet Mr. Jones.”). Never introduce yourself unless there is a reason for the other person to know who you are. Just mingle with the few people you know and enjoy yourself. There is no need to work the room. If you must introduce yourself, give the person an identifying phrase. For example, “I’ll be working with you on the PTA.” The worst sin of all is to make no introduction at all. I’m sure you’ve been left standing in a group, talking to someone you weren’t introduced to….awkward. What do you say after being introduced? The only correct response is, “How do you do?” Or “How are you?” The only correct response to “How do you do?” is, “Fine, thank you.” If you did not hear the name correctly? You’ll need to jump right in and say, “Excuse me, I did not hear your name.” Don’t
By Lynley Jones and Jan Swift
What if you are wrongly introduced? In the South, we think correcting someone is rude. It is not rude, and in fact, it is quite helpful. If someone introduces you with the wrong name, correct them immediately. The polite way to correct
someone is “Excuse me, my name is_________.” Name blackout. If you don’t remember someone’s name and they are approaching you to start a conversation, immediately jump in with, “Excuse me, I can’t place your name.” This phrase works every time and implies that you know who they are and you just can’t put a name with their face.

“Hello” is the universal greeting in America. Greetings in public require a small nod and a smile.
When to Rise • Host/Hostess always rise to greet each guest.
“Men should rise when a lady enters the room for the first time and remain standing until she is seated.” When to Shake Hands Men shake hands when introduced to each other, unless they have to cross a room. Strictly speaking, if a man/woman extends his/her hand, a lady must
A lady does not rise when being introduced to someone at a distance. Nor when shaking hands with anyone, unless that person is much older or prominent.
Men should rise when a lady enters the room for the first time and remain standing until she is seated or leaves his presence.
Keeping these rules in mind as you meet new acquaintances will allow you to be gracious, appropriate and enjoy yourself as you build your circle of friends and colleagues. Now go out, mingle, and have fun!

Smokin’ Hot Eyes in 8 Easy Steps
By Madeline Gardner
As October approaches, many women find their schedules filling up with parties and evening events. You have the perfect dress, the perfect accessories–but are you stressing about the right evening look for your makeup? Don’t fret, we can help. If you want an elegant and dramatic look and like a little color, think about giving the smoky eye a go. Here’s how:
First step is to start off with a lid primer. I like to use my concealer for this step, however, most cosmetic lines will have an eyelid primer.
Follow up with a smoky eye shadow.
Choose a shade that is close to your skin color to set the primer. (Quick tip: I use my powder foundation for this.) This will give you a blank canvas to work with.
Diagram: Classic Contour Eye Make Up
Next, apply a highlighter.
Apply this to your brow bone and inner eye corner. (See diagram above) My go-to colors are light gold or pearl white.
a. mobile lid b. inner eye corner c. crease/contour
d. lash line e. brow bone
Now, pick out a medium-toned color. This will be applied to the mobile lid of the eye. Some colors to consider: gold, light pinks, beige, and light browns. You will see the baby powder I used underneath the eyes. This is great when using dark eye shadows on the eyes because it catches any excess that may fall and when you’re finished with the eyes, just brush it off with your foundation brush.

Apply to the outer corner of your eyes. (Think dark browns, black, navy, and plums). The key to this step is blending it inward and in the crease of the eye and continuing to blend up towards the brow bone. This will help give you the smoky affect that you desire.
Line your lids. To line the lid of the eye, you can use your liner of choice whether it is liquid, powder, pencil, or gel. To give the extra smoky look, I use a gel liner so that I can smudge it upwards and give a great smoky look to the eye. For a cleaner look, do not smudge.
Line underneath the eyes.
To do this, I like to use a powder. I always use my darkest color eye shadow that is on the top of the eye to help line underneath. I used in this photo the mid-tone color and lined the complete eye underneath. I then followed it up with a little black eye shadow and only applied it in the far corner underneath the eyes. This draws the eyes outward and helps give a sultry look.
Tip: For an even more dramatic look, line your waterline underneath (the inside of the bottom of the eye) with a black stick/pencil liner. Continue reading

Our styles set you apart.
Fill in your eyebrows.
Not sure how dark to make them? The darker the shadow, the darker the eyebrows. Your eyebrows are meant to frame your face, and if they are lighter, then your face will look round and your look will look incomplete.
The smoky eye look may not be for everyone. Are you someone who doesn’t like to wear a lot of makeup? You can still make a statement by wearing a bold lip and leaving the eyes soft with a simple coat of mascara.

What’s a Bold Lip? A bold lip is anything darker than your natural lip that will draw attention to your mouth and not your eyes. Think of versions of red, pink, and plum. The purpose for an evening look is to have a dramatic look whether the attention is on your eyes, lips, or both. Take time out of your evenings and attempt one or both of the looks and see which one fits you the best and then rock it out for your next special occasion. We promise you can’t go wrong.

Little Libraries, Big on Literacy
By Flint Zerangue, Jr.
The University of Louisiana Lafayette’s Architecture and Design department hosted a competition that combines an artistic design project with a literacy cause that is heating up around the nation, Little Free Libraries. The non-profit organization’s mission is to promote literacy and love for reading by building thousands of free book exchanges or, what they like to call, “Little Libraries”. The idea is that a steward can assume responsibility of a Little Library by not only offering their yard for the structure to be placed, but also keeping the unique handmade housing filled with a variety of books. Little Free Libraries has been a hit in major metropolitan areas like Houston, Atlanta, Milwaukee, New Orleans, and has finally made its way to Lafayette, thanks to UL. The program coordinator for the project, Professor Geoff Gjertson said, “Each year we challenge our students with a three to four week competition-style project. This year I chose Little Libraries for the project because I thought it was a great way to challenge students with a project that could be interactive with the community as well as support a wonderful cause.” Utilizing creative and architectural skills, approximately 90 students were challenged to build tiny libraries that could hold at least a dozen books.

Their creations were quite impressive. Many of the applicants included abstract materials in their designs and some even used natural vegetation for cosmetic appeal. Co-founder and executive director of Little Free Libraries, Todd Bol, said in an interview, “We feel extremely honored that they would consider this a project for the university. It’s the first time we’ve had an architecture school step it up with a contest and what is so fascinating to us is that these students have really stretched the bounds and boundaries of what we typically see in a Little Free Library.” Faculty from UL, local architecture professionals, and staff from the Lafayette Parish Public Library System judged the competition. First Place was awarded to Ben Magallon and Second Place to Tyler Melncon. About twenty to thirty of the top-tier libraries will be placed in Lafayette neighborhoods in order to encourage literacy and interaction within the community. The structures will initially be filled with books that have been donated from the Lafayette Public Library, then, it is the job of the steward to keep the library filled. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a steward of a Little Library, please email Geoff Gjertson at Gjertson@louisiana.edu.

Spirit of Halloween By Connor Day As the leaves begin to change and the air gets (slightly) cooler, it comes time to plan for one of kids’ favorite holidays of the year—Halloween! As a child and even as a teenager, I looked forward to Halloween night every year. It was great to get dressed up and immerse myself in the magic of witches, monsters, pumpkins and free candy. Halloween was also my favorite because it gave my family and friends a good reason to all get together and delve into the wild creativity and imagination that goes hand in hand with Halloween. This year get into the spirit and explore your spooky side by adding a little flair and creativity to one of the most exciting and fun holidays of
One of my favorite parts of Halloween was carving jack-o-lanterns with my family and friends. There is something truly magical about turning a pumpkin into a smiling face or a silhouette of a black cat. To make carving even more fun invite over friends and neighbors to join in.
the year! Also, don’t be afraid to break tradition! Who says a pumpkin can only be carved? For those who have young children or just want to explore their creative side, use paint! Turn that pumpkin into a work of art through paint, stickers, markers, glue and googley eyes. Nothing makes it feel more like Halloween than a smiling jack-o-lantern or a beautifully painted pumpkin on the front porch.
Eerie Decorating Tips: Add some spooky mood lighting to any house by replacing your porch light with a colored light bulb in green, orange, purple or red. You can also drape your door, fences or trees with Christmas-style lights in similar colors to add to your overall decorations. 40 FACE | OCTOBER 2012
More Spooky Ideas: Turn colorful plastic jack-o-lantern candy pails into festive lightup faces that glow in the dark! Buy some cheap plastic jack-o-lantern candy pails and hang them from tree branches or nestle them in bushes around your yard. Right before dark you can create the illusion that they are glowing by placing small electric tea lights inside each one! Voila, now you have a host of glowing jack-o-lanterns floating around your yard.

Halloween is a night of spooks and scares, but don’t let it end after the trick-or-treating. My favorite Halloween tradition in my family was the annual Halloween Movie Party. Every year my family and I would set up a projector screen in the back yard and invite the neighborhood kids and school friends over for scary movies! With some PVC pipe and an old white sheet, we could turn our backyard into an outdoor theatre perfect for watching movies out under the stars. This was one of the most anticipated events of the Halloween season for my friends and me.
Build Your Own Projector Screen: Materials Needed: Flat bed sheet 5 PVC pipes (1 1/2” - 2” diameter) 2 PVC 90 degree connectors 2 PVC ‘T’ connectors 2-Rebar (3ft)
Measure width and length of bed sheet. Select PVC pipe lengths to be approximately 1” longer on each side. (Cut with hack saw if necessary.) Insert 1 pipe through sheet top seam and add the 90 degree connectors to each end. Insert pipe into each connector to form the frame. Add the PVC ‘T’ connectors to the ends and another PVC pipe to connect the 2 ‘T’s to finish the frame. Cut the remaining PVC pipe to have 2- 2ft lengths of pipe and attach to the bottom of the ‘T’ connectors. Hammer the rebar pipes into the ground the width of the frame apart. Gently lift the frame and insert lower pipes onto the rebar to stand the
frame. (Optional - use circular curtain rod hooks to attach the bottom of the sheet to the lower pipe)

So it is no surprise that music has always been a passion for Linda. “We always had a piano in the house. Music takes me to another place. It creates a refuge and relieves the stresses of the day,” Linda shares. She still has a piano in her home as well as a collection of antique musical instruments, many of which belonged to her father. Linda Rose loves music, but she may love her job even more. Linda is the administrator of the Breast Center of Acadiana and has made breast health her life’s work. After graduating from high school in Opelousas, and receiving her Bachelor of Science from Centenary College in Shreveport (where she also sang in the choir), Linda moved to Dallas, Texas to begin her career in medical technology as a laboratory intern at St. Paul’s Hospital. She continued her laboratory specialty in Dallas, nine years in Detroit, and ultimately moved back 62 FACE | OCTOBER 2012
Significant changes occurred in Linda’s life in 2001 following the end of a tumultuous 29-year marriage filled with emotional ups and downs. “It was time to concentrate on me and find out who the real me was. It felt a little bit selfish,” Linda says humbly, “but it felt necessary in order to move on with my life.” And move on, she did. Shortly after the divorce, Linda was offered a position by The University of Virginia to manage their Breast Health Center program in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a long way from Lafayette, Louisiana. After difficult and emotional deliberations with her grown children, especially considering being away from her only grandchild, Linda decided that it was an opportunity she could not pass up.
