Linda was such a helpful and encouraging person every time I spoke with her on the phone. (Mitch Warren)
Linda was just an incredibly helpful and positive person. She was literally the first person I interacted with at Rockbridge and by her warmth she immediately diffused the fear that online education was going to be cold and impersonal. (Larry Baxter)
She was a true blessing to those of us who were fortunate to know her. (Rick Blair)
Linda was always so kind and helpful to me. When we adopted twins she was so excited for us and did whatever she could to be a help to me while we adjusted to our new family life. (Andy Lawrenson)
