Raised an Indiana farm girl, Linda headed south as soon as she could to enjoy a warmer climate. She attended university in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Armed with a degree in radio, television, film and marketing, she worked with CBS in Seattle, Tulsa, and Houston as a local account executive, but her heart was in Dallas. When the opportunity arose, she moved to Dallas and became a National Network Television Executive negotiating ad placements between large national accounts and network affiliates in the top ten media markets across the country.
She met her husband on a blind date and eloped three months later. They adopted three Russian orphans, and she became a homeschool mom in two languages while managing a cattle ranch outside of Dallas. When the kids were grown, they moved back to the city where they own several businesses and pioneered the concept of escape rooms in the DFW Metroplex.
Linda is passionate about supporting the local community. With the recent dramatic shift to online sales, she understands the significance of having a strong online presence and solid marketing strategy. Helping business owners effectively utilize digital marketing tools while maintaining their focus on running their business is what inspires her. Her background in advertising and as a business owner allows her insight into maximizing the power of the internet to prepare businesses to achieve success in the new digital economy.
She loves cooking, gardening and spending time with her horse. If you listen closely to her heart, you will hear his hoofbeats.
