Today’s Meet the Board Monday is spotlighting our Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce’s Past Chair, Linda Parker. Linda is a graduate of Leadership Vestavia Hills, the Past-President of the Junior League of Cobb- Marietta and has been the owner of Bruster’s Real Ice Cream since 2005 when it opened in it’s current Vestavia Hills location on Highway 31.
Her background; though, is in Accounting. In fact, she graduated with a degree in Accounting from Samford University and is a CPA.
While Linda was still at Samford, she met her husband, Scott, while at a video game room. “My Galaga machine messed up, and he fixed it for me,” she said of their encounter.
They now have two sons- Christopher who is a graduate student at Auburn University, and Michael who manages Bruster’s Real Ice Cream on Caldwell Mill Road. The Parkers also have a dog, Minka, who is “an American Eskimo diva.”
Linda was born in Miami, but has lived on many different bodies of water- the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
Thank you, Linda, for all that you do for our community and our Chamber of Commerce!
