About Me


About MeAbout Dr. Linda

Hey there! Welcome to my website. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by. Let me introduce myself. I’m a Brooklyn girl by birth and attitude, although I’ve lived in Florida for over 20 years. Having a Brooklyn attitude means that I love life and creativity. Jazz and “Old School” music definitely works for me although I appreciate the lyrics and rhyme of Hip Hop. And yes, I love classical music as well, with a special appreciation for Baroque music and Bach.

By training, I’m a board certified ob-gyn physician who spent most of my career working in public health. I’m also an author and have another website called www.drlindaburkegalloway.com where I share information about pregnancy and prenatal issues. Prior to becoming a physician (thank you Boston University School of Medicine), I was a social worker and a graduate of Columbia University School of Social Work where I met my best friends for life and learned to exceed my self-imposed limitations.

I am the mother of 2 phenomenal sons who never cease to amaze me, especially since I was told that I could not have children. My sons were born in Ethiopia and arrived in this country at ages 6 and 7. They are now teenagers which I still find hard to believe. They’ve introduced me to a world of cross country running, basketball and learning how to get filthy white baseball pants miraculously white again. (Why must baseball pants be white, of all things?)

So, what can you expect to receive from this website? An inside perspective of “lessons learned” regarding life. There’s no sense in me leaving this planet (hopefully not anytime soon) with all of the music left inside of me. How do we navigate this space called “Life” in a constructive way?

So, come take this journey with me and we’ll learn along the way. I have celebrated joyous moments in my life but have also had moments when I didn’t think I was going to make it. What I learned is that every problem has a solution (really, it does) and at the end of a dark tunnel is the miracle of light. You just have to hang in there long enough to see it.
