Here’s her response to being honored in her own words; “At the time of my Top 100 selection, my role was coming to an end. I didn't feel worthy, so I asked the question; why me? Grace and mercy in this life answered back; you are not deﬁned by your credentials or the position you hold. Your signiﬁcance comes from the people you’ve served and lives touched.”
“In my journey, I have been privileged to serve beautiful souls along the way. We've cried together in my office because of a lost child, laughed at funny stories, worked long hours, cheered for each other and helped each other succeed. It was love sometimes wrapped in toughness. But always fair, which produced more love and success. My journey is shaped by seeing people. Truly, looking them in the eyes and letting them know they're valuable and capable of excellence. There are many that invested in me and I'm grateful. That is success. Be purposeful about the well-being of others. Start with those closest to you and extend out. There's a world dying for love. Customers and employees are no different. Everyone needs it. It gives peace and fulﬁllment.”
Linda is a person of faith. She serves on the board of the Annie T. Doe Memorial Foundation (ATDF), which provides free education for more than 300 kids in Liberia, West Africa. She also volunteers at a women’s shelter and supports the American Heart Association. Linda is on the board of Classroom Central, an organization that provides school supplies for teachers in the Charlotte, N.C. area. She received both excellence and inspired legacy awards for her leadership on business resource groups (BRG), including the African American & Caribbean BRG. Linda was also the national co-chair for the Women’s BRG.
