Life & Livelihood Transition

What is essential in a thoughtful transition plan to live a purpose-filled life?

  • Understand and embrace change for a meaningful and productive shift
  • Revitalize your abilities to transform your life
  • Successfully address challenges and set realistic expectations of yourself and others

I have guided many organizational leaders to successfully and thoughtfully transition from their positions and support their team to create opportunities for a new leader. Conversely, I have assisted leaders stepping into new positions to embrace and develop their leadership talents.


Ms Linda walks a dynamic line between being intentional and flexible as a coach that keeps our sessions together both evocative and effective. I am extremely grateful for her guidance. If you are in need of inspiration and motivation to accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible, then hire Linda immediately!

Linda and I have been working together for about eight years now. She has coached me through major life goals: writing my MA thesis, running for office, losing a parent, and losing a job. I struggle with self-care and working with Linda helps me stay focused on caring for myself in spite of what is happening in my life, and to keep moving toward my goals, sometimes fast and sometimes slowly, but making progress. It helps to have someone who lovingly holds me accountable to my goals.

Working with Linda helped me become unstuck from negative thinking and the pull of taking so-called “safe” career paths. She helped me see how following my passion, although scary, is doable, deeply fulfilling and a happier path. I couldn’t have made the shift without her.

Linda’s coaching has helped me navigate complex situations with grace and caring strategies. She is the best support a working woman of color can have! I cannot recommend her enough.
