Linda Gertsen

    My current and past professions.

    I live in Abbotsford and am retired from many years as an insurance adjuster for I.C.B.C.

    Why I joined Soroptimist.

    In 1986 I joined Soroptimist looking for friendship. I was a young widow and looked forward to the company of other business women.

    What I like best about being a member.

    As time passed I became much more involved in the community, as I became aware of all the needs around me. Years later I became more interested in the worldwide influence of Soroptimists, participating in United Nations facts gatherings and helping anywhere I can. I have held most positions in the club, including being President three times. Now I enjoy sitting back a bit and letting the younger members with their fresh ideas lead the way.
