With insights gleaned from her unique background, Linda encourages others to higher levels of self-confidence, productivity, and purpose. Inspired by her unwavering faith in God, she has an independent, entrepreneurial spirit, and is happiest when she knows her work is making a positive, impactful difference in the lives of others.
