Staff-9Linda Abelkis, School Director

Linda was born and raised in Tennessee and graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville with a Math Degree in 1988. After graduation, Linda moved to Chicago with her husband, Kai. While the urban lifestyle and summers at Wrigley Field suited Linda and Kai, they chose to move their family to Colorado in 1999, seeking blue skies and Waldorf education for their children. 

Linda has three children, in various stages of high school, college and post-college. She worked as a Health Actuary for 18 years before stepping into the role of Administrative Director at Shepherd Valley Waldorf School, a position she held for eight years. Linda joined the BWK community in May 2014 and is grateful for the chance to serve this community.
