Linda Hutchinson, MA, Gerontologist – Care Manager
Working with aging populations is a family tradition for Linda Hutchinson. A native of Colorado, Linda is the granddaughter of Peter and Ann Borris, veritable legends in the field of nursing home care: their accomplishments include building a series of nursing homes along the Rocky Mountain front range as well as opening a natural living institute in the foothills above Fort Collins, CO.
