Pardee provides consulting and counseling services in Flagstaff and the Verde Valley, in addition to her private practice in Cottonwood. She is also the mother of Mingus Union High School junior, Alexander Lineberry (16), a nationally ranked tennis player who recently won the Arizona State High School 4-A II individual doubles championship.
