This week's #TeamTuesday featured team member is our beloved Linda Mitchell! Linda Mitchell is the current Director of Public and Community Relations and oversees the NAC Have a A Heart Foundation. Linda functions as the NAC representative to the community, in addition to handling all club communications as they relate to overall club operations, senior management, charitable giving, media relations and more. She began working at the NAC in 1981 as the Group Exercise Director. After 15 years in that position, she became Director of Marketing and Public Relations. As the NAC grew, her role has become more specific to special projects, such as communications for major expansions, fundraising, public relations and member communications.
Fun Fact: The image above is of Linda teaching aerobics at a child's birthday party. If you couldn't already tell from the hair, outfits and old studio style, the picture was taken in the late 80's (est. 1988)! She was the first person to do a child's birthday party at the NAC.

1. What is your favorite part of your job?
The favorite part of my job was teaching aerobics to my many, many students from 1981 up until 2000. As I became responsible for PR and communications I learned that I loved writing and now that is my favorite part along with constantly meeting and making new friends both within the NAC and the community.
