Linda Fordyce

Board Member, Volunteer Coordinator

Linda Fordyce and her husband, John, have stayed in over 50 hostels worldwide. They love backpacking and the camaraderie of staying in hostels. They brought from Europe a determination that Little Rock would have a hostel to offer to our international travelers.

They have raised a combined family of eight children and ten grandchildren. Both have been long-time scout leaders, backpackers, campers, and canoeists. Both have been active in community service. Linda values the great educational benefit of travel. With a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Arkansas and a Master’s in Social Work from UALR, her experience includes public speaking, private practice as a psychotherapist, and teaching Sociology in a local community college. She has a deep interest in international and cultural exchange, especially through hosteling.
