Linda Park earned her B.S. in Nutritional Sciences from Michigan State University and her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Ferris State University. She has been the MICU pharmacist at Detroit Receiving Hospital since 2003 where she enjoys working with a multidisciplinary team and precepts students and post-doctorate degree pharmacists.
Linda is crazy about her kids, Brooke and Benjamin, and enjoys being a soccer mom and participating with their school activities. Linda became an avid runner after hearing about the Pokot tribe in Kenya. In 2013, she began running marathons to raise funds and awareness for clean water with Hope Water Project and later Hope Water International. To date, she has run eleven marathons, with the 2018 Boston Marathon being the most recent. Her long-term goal is to run all six Abbott World Marathon Majors. Occasionally, Brooke and Ben will run a 5k with their mom. If she’s not running, you will either find her at a yoga studio or biking.
While on the run, she listens to podcasts and music by bands such as AWOLNATION and Arcade Fire. She finds inspiration from her teammates and loves joining them for long runs. One of her favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
