What Our Clients Are Saying


Linda was recommended to me by an industry connection because of her tenure and expertise in the technology industry and experience as a C-level Silicon Valley executive assistant. I was at a point in my career where I had been in the same role for 6 years with no idea how to grow and demand a higher compensation. As a career EA, I thought I was at my cap and there was nowhere to go from there. Enter: Linda! She picked me up, dusted me off and gave me a renewed sense of self and purpose. Her direct and lighthearted approach made me feel capable for the first time in a long time, especially since the height of this was during and coming out of the pandemic where I think a lot of people felt lost, including myself. Linda gave me structured ideas of how to market myself for my current role and encouraged me to advocate for myself when it came time for annual reviews and really challenged me to develop goals for myself that I could start to reach for. I would recommend Linda to anyone who is looking to level-up in your current role, or if you’re in the place in your life where you need to pivot and want to land on your feet. You will find her warm, relatable and charming, all while challenging you to be a better version of yourself to grow and develop.
