    Linda began her practice in 2005 with a single, simple desire: to help people improve their lives and futures. She brings an active, lean-forward approach to her practice, offering a considered and thoughtful perspective in the areas of asset management, corporate benefits, retirement planning and support for people facing financial decisions after a loss or divorce. Two- parts math/science/stats buff and one-part psychologist, Linda offers financial advice clients describe as lifestyle coaching and support.

    Linda moved her practice from Merrill Lynch to UBS in August of 2018, and she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her role as a seasoned Senior Portfolio Manager. She firmly believes that getting deep into the details of her clients’ finances gives her a granular, market-level view of new investment opportunities. Drawing on her background as a corporate executive at Pac Bell/SBC (now AT&T), Linda is uniquely qualified to help both employees and executives leverage benefits packages and rollovers, and her impressive roster of referral-based business speaks to a highly satisfied client base.

    Linda’s passion for helping extends to other areas of her life as well. She is on the Salvation Army Advisory Board, where she specializes in family housing and rehabilitation facilities, and has also volunteered at a church-based youth education program. In addition, Linda was Board President of her local Little League chapter for four years and has run fundraisers for the school athletic program in her district. In her spare time, Linda loves cooking and wine. An exercise enthusiast with a green thumb, you’re as likely to find her in the back garden as you are at her local gym.
