Jazz Outreach Initiative is "overJOIed" to welcome our newest Board Member, Dr. Linda Woodson, MD of Linda Woodson Dermatology (two offices in Vegas and Henderson)! A lunch with Donny Thompson and subsequent conversations with Pres./Artistic Dir., Kenny Rampton, V.P. BoD Curt Miller, and Secretary Juliana McRae who had recommended her led to a unanimous vote of the nomination committee and the larger BoD. We are ecstatic about how perfect a fit Linda is given her long service to the community as a highly regarded business leader and a jazz musician and lover.
Linda Woodson, MD is a board certified dermatologist and has been a resident of Las Vegas serving her patients since 1994. She is a Los Angeles native who attended the University of Southern California Medical School. She holds an Electrical Engineering degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Dr. Woodson’s practice has been recognized by the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List and is a three time winner of the Best of Las Vegas and a nine time winner of the Best of Henderson. Dr. Woodson has been recognized by MyVegas Magazine as a Top Doctor, an American Registry Award for Most Honored Professionals, she is a two time Consumer Research Council Award winner for Top Dermatologist and a Worldwide Who’s Who Award as a top expert in her field.
Outside of her medical practice, she is also a professional singer and songwriter. She enjoys singing jazz as well as performing in musical theater. She can be seen frequently around town at the Gatsby Supperclub, The Nevada Room, the Italian American Club and other venues where she performs her tribute to jazz vocalist Nancy Wilson and other musical favorites. She is very proud of her three, now adult children, Johnnie III, Mark and Monique.
If you're coming to the Annual JOI Benefit DinnerSoiree Tuesday Aug 9th at Monzu Italian Oven + Bar or if you're coming to our Pre-CD Release Concert of the JOI Jazz Orchestra big band on Friday Aug. 12, you'll get a chance to meet and speak with Dr. Woodson!
