Linda is adept at breaking complex ideas down and making them accessible to the average reader, and an expert at condensing large ideas down into small spaces.
Other interests include web and graphic design, cooking, aging, and family relationships.
Linda began her educational experience in 2003, while working as the Legal Advocate for Emerald City Shelters, a battered-women's shelter. She subsequently put her education on hold while she raised her children, and in the interim discovered a love of science and medicine.
Linda graduated from Wellspring School of Allied Health, Kansas City, in 2011, receiving a certificate of academic excellence. Her course of study there included massage therapy, general health and wellness, nutrition, and fundamental concepts of Chinese Traditional Medicine.
Linda is currently pursuing an Associate of Science in Health and Wellness.
Although she is new to the world of online freelancing, Linda has been creating health and wellness related content for years. Her focus has been primarily on her social media following, but has extended into print on occasion. Her real-world clients include wellness centers, yoga studios, and even health departments. She is currently both writing and editing for several online content-creation companies, and is eager to grow her audience.
Linda's fitness content has focused on CrossFit, Paleo eating, and how to improve your workout through lifestyle changes you might not normally connect to fitness, such as adequate sleep.
Self-help is Linda's current area of focus. Not only is self-help a popular topic, it is a natural extension of her work in teaching classes and workshops. Topics she has covered include wellness ("Bottoms Up: Cutting Out Sugary Drinks Helps You Lose Weight), illness ("Influenza: 5 Facts You Should Know About the Flu), and aging (Post-Retirement Myths). Much of her freelance self-help work has been for Yellow Pages "quick tips" program.
Linda sometimes moonlights as a web designer for I.D. Management and has designed many websites including the home site of Romeo Entertainment. She enjoys working with WordPress, but occasionally does design from scratch. She is comfortable with MySQL, and understands the basics of PHP.
Linda is also an ordained minister, although she is currently without a congregation. She feels very strongly that Christianity today has become mired in dogma, and that religious leaders need to step outside party lines and think more deeply about what they are teaching.
Blog posts are the bread and butter of many content writers, and Linda is no exception. She blogs regularly for a wide range of clients operating in the health and wellness field, as well as writing political opinion pieces.
Although advertising is a new field for Linda, it's one that she's interested in expanding. To date she has created successful advertising for ebooks, nutritional supplements, and self-help programs.
Although she has seldom been called on to author whitepapers, her efforts in this direction have been quite successful. In 2015, she authored a whitepaper which was actually presented to a Congressional committee.
