Cooke is a graduate of The State University of New York, with a degree in Graphic Arts and Advertising.
She worked for Raytheon, (a government contractor) as a graphic illustrator. During her employment with Raytheon, she earned recognition by having an ad appear in the Air Force Magazine. It was during her time at Raytheon that Cooke met and married her husband, an Air Force officer, in 1985.
She joined the Officers Wives’ Club (OWC) at Hanscom AFB and held two elected positions on the OWC Board, corresponding secretary and publisher of the newspaper.
While moving from assignment to assignment, Cooke and her husband raised three children, two boys and a girl. Their older son is now in the United States Coast Guard and their daughter works for the Department of Defense as an intelligence analyst.
Originally from New York, Cooke and her family now call Virginia home. She has been with Keller Williams Realty for more than a decade. Linda currently serves as a marketing specialist, overseeing all promotions. Her work in advertising has been recognized with a first-place award from the Virginia State Newspaper association.
"I am honored to be associated with Armed Forces Motorsports as they uphold the principles of honor, pride and respect, and remember those who served,” Cooke said.
