Linda joins Pinnacle with extensive experience in Change Management, Learning & Development, Organizational Effectiveness, and Business Development. Her background spans a broad range of industries from retail, airline and legal, where she led a variety of enterprise-wide change management and training initiatives. She started her career as a Public Defender where she developed her zeal for client representation that carries forward today in her daily client interactions. A strategic thinker and natural problem-solver, she dives deep to find the root cause of problems and develops options tailored to each situation. Her most rewarding moments at work are based upon strong client relationships she builds through listening for understanding, earning trust and delivering value.
