Managing Director & Founder

Linda leads talent strategy design work and talent acquisition audit, strategy design and process improvement efforts for TGA's clients. She’s passionate about defining what “good” looks like and taking concrete, measurable and staged steps to get there. 

She's been innovating talent acquisition transformation and recruiting audits with her team for over 15 years and uses this knowledge to help clients define and implement measurably better and sustainable outcomes. Working with a wide range of industries and organization types, Linda and her team help each client determine the specific and customized "TA operating model" (blend of TA strategy, process, tech, org design, metrics and investment) needed to significantly improve the speed, quality and diversity of hiring. 

Prior to TGA, Linda worked in a variety of operations, talent acquisition and talent management leadership roles with Gap, Pepsi and Home Depot before starting her first business - an earlier iteration of Talent Growth Advisors - in 2003. Since then, Linda has built a team of finance, HR, talent acquisition, talent management, recruitment marketing, change and communications and operations experts. With wildly diverse backgrounds, they have one thing in common: exceptional problem solving and customer service skills. After all, only with such diversity of thought can businesses solve the significant and challenging people-related issues they face today.

Linda holds an MA in Labor and Employment Relations and a BA in Judaic Studies, both from the University of Cincinnati. She and her family live in Atlanta.
