Linda Schreiber was born in Des Moines, Iowa, and raised on her family’s century farm in Warren County. She moved to Iowa City where she earned a B.B.A in Business Administration majoring in human resource management and marketing and a master’s degree in Communication and Journalism from the University of Iowa. Now retired, Today, Linda spends her time writing, gardening and volunteering to assist nonprofit organizations.
Linda served two terms on the League of Women Voters of Johnson County Board of Directors where she dedicated her journalistic skills to a long list of LWVJC communication projects. She continues to be active as a journalist and organizer behind the scenes. As an event organizer, Linda secured speakers whose topics aligned squarely with LWVIA’s legislative priorities: civil rights, voting rights, the importance of a free press, affordable housing and the bottle bill. During the League’s 100th anniversary, Linda helped the Century of Impact Committee raise funds for its commemorative programs, track collaborative projects, and promote presentations while keeping donors updated and informed.
For nearly 40 years, Linda lived in rural Johnson County with her husband Steve; they moved to Iowa City in 2012.
