Cinda and her identical twin Linda grew up with their three brothers in East Africa where their parents served as medical missionaries. Her nursing, health education, and law enforcement careers combined for a rich 20 year career teaching at the Texas Game Warden Academy.
She currently pursues her mission — to unleash the champion in people — through her volunteer work in the Discovery Program and her connections with people that cross her path.
Cinda lives near Austin, Texas, with her husband, Stanley, and Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, Buddy. Among her interests are travel and competitive sports. She is an eleven time gold medalist in the World Police and Fire Games Biathlon.
Linda served as a missionary to East Africa with her husband John Byron and four kids. Leaving her medical clinics in Africa behind, she now lives in San Antonio where John Byron pastors a church and she plies her passion to help people in her job as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.
...the answer begins four decades earlier when their parents and family of five children left everything familiar in America to start a life as medical missionaries in rural East Africa.
