Appointment made to Board of Physical Therapy

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Linda Minter, of Okemos, to the Michigan Board of Physical Therapy.

The 11-member board plays an advisory role, and assists the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs with overseeing the practice of physical therapists.  


"I appreciate Linda's willingness to serve the people of Michigan in this role and I am confident she will do great work," said Snyder.    


Minter is retired after years of service with Lansing Community College's Women's Resource Center, first as a re-entry and non-traditional career specialist and later as coordinator. She serves on the fundraising committee for the Greater Lansing Housing Coalition and is the newsletter editor for Meridian Township's Edgewood Village. Minter earned a bachelor's degree in English literature and a master's degree in education administration, both from Michigan State University. She will represent the general public and fills a vacancy created by the resignation of Sean Handler.


Minter will serve the remainder of a four-year term that expires Dec. 31, 2013, and her appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
