March 18 -- East-side Tri-Stake Fireside

An adult convert to the Church, Linda Conlee is a native of Northern California. She was tracked out by missionaries, baptized by her doctor, and home taught by her college professor. Most of her friends were LDS. Becoming a member the Church was inevitable.

A graduate of San José State University with degrees in Interior Design, Environmental Architecture, and Business Administration, she took a hiatus from the design world and came to Oregon to raise her children, but soon returned to the commercial construction industry to develop marketing programs for several companies with offices in Portland, Seattle and Sacramento.

Her experience in marketing evolved into a strong interest in the decision-making process and how the brain processes and holds information. In 2004 she left the construction industry to become a Neuroplastician and opened a clinic to work with children and adults with brain injuries, learning disabilities, and stroke and dementia patients.

(This was the most exciting and gratifying profession of all – watching the positive change in people’s lives and the lives of those who care for them! It was almost like serving a mission.)

Sister Conlee retired to care for her aging parents, one of whom has severe dementia and Alzheimers. She is married to Richard Conlee. They have two wonderful children, 10 amazing grandchildren, and 4 addorable great-grandchildren. She is currently serving in the Portland Temple and has served in several stake and ward positions including Primary, Young Women’s, Relief Society, Gospel Doctrine Teacher, and Seminary Teacher. She is currently the Oregon City Stake Seminary Supervisor.

All this and she’s only 30 year old!!
