Linda started in the consumer electronics business at a time where there were very few women in leadership positions. Linda broke through all those stereotypes and became one of the most successful women in the history of the Consumer Electronics business.

After graduation, she married her high school sweetheart, Doug and they moved to San Diego California in 1966.

After retiring in 2005, Linda spent her time with her beloved daughter, Melissa.
