The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Linda holds MBA and MEd degrees from Lehigh University and a BA in Biology from Gettysburg College. After serving four years as an officer in the US Army Chemical Corps and 15 as a high school science teacher, she discovered social entrepreneurship during a trip with the Lehigh MBA Department to Chile and Argentina in the summer of 2013. In 2014, she and the founding team incorporated HSI to equip and serve people who wanted to begin charitable programs that would raise the quality of life for people around them.
Linda has led many student humanitarian service trips both in the US and abroad, and has a passion for promoting leadership and service. She enjoys the outdoors and many kinds of music. Linda highly values her faith and her family, spending much of her free time with her children and grandchildren.

- We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
- We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
- We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
- We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
