Linda Goodridge: Age and Profession
Linda was born on January 21, 1991. Since March 2020, Linda has been working as a roofer. Before turning to roof construction, she served as a Deputy Sheriff of Monroe County in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
During her time as a Sheriff, Linda was involved in a lot of welfare programs that helped the inmates to find a source of income once they re-enter the world outside of prison. She is proud of her work in her previous job, most of which has helped her community be a better and positive place.
Her work as a roofer demands a lot of physical strength and the taxing work can also affect her mental stability, which is why the 29-year-old wakes up early in the morning to work on her body and mind. She loves to workout and often posts fitness-related videos on her account!
