Based in Cairo, Egypt, Linda works with leaders in both corporate and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout the Middle East and Asia. As a leadership trainer, facilitator, and executive coach, her passion is to help facilitate the transformation journey incorporate cultures and individuals’ lives.

Linda has traveled to more than 40 nations and gained tremendous experience and insight while living in Kabul, Afghanistan. She served as the director of coaching and as a leadership trainer/facilitator for nearly two-and-a-half years with Silk RoadSolutions (SRS). She interfaced with government, business, and civil sectors as she worked with Afghan leaders to “think new, act different, and create change.”
