Linda is an ICF Professional Certified Coach, a Certified Enneagram Practitioner, and a trusted partner for senior and emerging leaders striving to effect positive social change in communities, make a change in their own lives, or grow in a new role or responsibilities.
Linda believes in the capacity of people to grow and change, to adapt to changing times and new challenges, and to live into their dreams. She enjoys helping people identify and explore what matters most to them and chart a course to transition into their next chapter or achieve their goals where they are. She delights in working with people who want to become slightly better versions of themselves and experience happier and more successful professional and/or personal lives.
With over forty years of broad experience in nonprofit and public organizations, Linda brings a unique perspective to her clients. She has served in senior leadership positions as an executive director, an elected public official, and chair of numerous nonprofit boards. She’s also been an uber-engaged volunteer, trainer, capacity builder ,and community organizer.
A curious and enthusiastic lifelong learner, she values assuming a beginner’s mindset when tackling novel ideas and experimenting with new practices. When not coaching or supervising, Linda most enjoys time with her husband, their three grown children and their families—including five of the most amazing grandchildren—and friends. Linda is grateful for the beauty and inspiration of nature. She finds calm and grounding in tai chi and meditation, experiences freedom and creativity in soul line dancing, and enjoys walking, reading, and having fun playing games.
