She has brought sanity, confidence and success to the industries she contributed to which include, manufacturing, transportation, insurance, data management, software development and bio/phrama. Her diverse experience creating strategic plans and leading organizations through change, brings a high degree of success to those she partners with.

As CEO of Klarinet Solutions, she is paving the way for companies to hire and grow their remote work force by providing tools for the virtual community/office. Linda saw a need for companies to be able to leverage “near-shore” solutions. This would give small companies an opportunity to attract talent from across the country, while providing opportunity to the communities in need of jobs. There is power in connecting team members through solid collaboration tools that employ workflow automation and connecting to your data from anywhere at any time.
