Linda McCoy is the owner and president of Waterloo Education, a niche textbook-consulting company providing correlations between state standards and textbook content. With more than 20 years of experience in this field, she has helped publishers provide educational materials to schools throughout the United States. When she is not reviewing textbooks, she loves to be out on the water enjoying Austin from her paddleboard or competing in stand-up paddleboard races. Her love of the water led her to advocate for a cleaner city through her work with Keep Austin Beautiful. She was named board president in 2016 and has served as a leader in the Adopt-a-Creek and Clean Lady Bird Lake programs for 10 years. An Austinite since 1992, she has enjoyed getting to know the city with her two sons.
