Linda Watermeyer was raised in Boston, Massachusetts and began her career as a real estate agent at age 19. She moved to South Africa in her 20’s, and enjoyed a career out in the field representing Hilti in Johannesburg. When Linda and her South African husband, Deryck, moved back to the US, they settled in the Dallas area where Deryck began his medical career. Linda was again a field sales rep, representing well know firms such as Hitachi, Texas Instruments, and Fujitsu. When an employment opportunity opened at St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma for Linda’s husband, they moved to the Seattle area where Linda continued her career as a rep for distribution of semiconductors.
Linda and Deryck chose to relocate to Gig Harbor over 23 years ago, and it was the best decision of their lives. To work and raise a family in a place where your home and work are wrapped in nature has been a gift, and they have honestly never looked back. Stand up paddle boarding, wind surfing, kiteboarding, and road biking are sports they and their family love to participate in when not at work.
