Classical Music plays a large part in Lynda’s life and is where her soul resides.
Lynda Jamison grew up in Toluca Lake in the San Fernando Valley (an original Valley Girl before it had a name), where she attended the public school system that had a very strong music program. From an early age, Lynda learned how to play the violin in the school orchestras and formed a close relationship with orchestral music through her college days. A highlight of her orchestral experience was annual participation in Bach Festivals (Lynda’s FAVORITE composer and all music of that period) and playing in many chamber orchestras. In 2015, Lynda took her long lapsed violin playing to Alasdair Fraser’s fiddle camp where she found a new love of this genre – playing by ear, without written music!
Active in the United Methodist Church, Lynda is a Conference Lay Minister graduate, certified speaker and involved in the life of the church as a Lay Leader at Sierra Pines Church in the Lake of the Pines area, where she resides with her spouse, John. They just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary. John and Lynda moved to South County in 1994 with their two children, Jeffrey and Jenna, who are now grown and reside in Placer County.
Lynda’s professional credentials were in the commercial banking arena where she had been involved for 45 years, the past 22 years as Chief Financial Officer for 5 startup community banks in Placer, Butte, Nevada and Sutter counties. Financial reporting, investing, analysis, projections, strategic planning and budget preparation were her primary responsibilities along with directing human resources, operations, compliance, information technology and corporate governance.
Classical music plays a large part in Lynda’s life and is where her soul resides. Always a 2nd violin, Lynda learned that harmony is where her heart is—in every situation—so it is fitting that she is an enthusiastic Alto 2 with the Sierra Master Chorale.
