Linda Croom, ANP,C

Linda Croom joined The Center for Sleep & Wake Disorders in 1998. Linda graduated from Mary Washington College with a BS in Biology and obtained her BS in Nursing from George Mason University. She worked at Virginia Hospital Center (Arlington Hospital) for ten years in medical-surgical nursing, advancing to the position of head nurse. Linda’s interest in the delivery of direct patient care led her to return to school, completing her Masters degree in Nursing from George Mason University and Nurse Practitioner requirements in collaboration with the George Washington University. As a Nurse Practitioner Linda worked for 3 years in a busy internal medicine practice in Fairfax, Virginia before her desire to specialize came to fruition when she joined Dr. Emsellem and The Center for Sleep & Wake Disorders. Linda has found that working as a Nurse Practitioner in Sleep Medicine is continually challenging and very rewarding. Linda brings a warm, caring style to the practice and is gratified by the high percentage of patients who experience a major improvement in quality of life when their sleep disorders are treated. Linda has been actively involved in our research efforts studying investigational treatments for sleep disorders. She has been the Study Coordinator for several research protocols, assisted in the training of our current research staff and has functioned as a sub-Investigator on many studies. In her spare time, Linda enjoys raising her son, gardening, biking, swimming, and dinner parties.
