Linda Lashendock was a long-time member of the CNN team in Washington D.C. as a producer, and has received 9 Emmys for her work. Her life has revolved around telling and producing stories people need to hear, but ensuring that the authentic voices of the people are heard. After her time with CNN, she moved to North Carolina where her mother and bonus father resided in at the time and took care of them both until they both passed. She believes it was a sign for her to stay in North Carolina when her mother passed because it was the one place her immediate family had finally settled down.
