An American raised in Latin America, Linda has traveled extensively throughout the world as international corporate counsel witnessing first-hand some of the world’s most pressing social issues. These life experiences helped shape Linda’s worldview and set her on the path to becoming a dedicated and passionate collaborator and architect for change.
