In case you wonder why she came to the US: As a little girl growing up in the Haarlem area of Holland (The Netherlands - NL), Linda had a great sense of adventure and felt the whole world was open to her. Her parents had worked abroad and she just knew she too would end up living in another country. She started international travel at the age of 13 and spent summers leading American exchange students through her country, while speaking English. At age 19 she worked in a kibbutz in Israel as a volunteer and became work planner for a crew of 45 young people, originating from 7 countries. The experience in dealing with different nationalities and cultures set the choice for her career in Human Resources and combined her broad interest in employment dynamics with her genuine people skills. She studied for her B.Sc. in HR in The Hague -NL at the Academy for Social Studies while working as a HR professional and recruiter in Europe. Before coming to the US in 1991, Linda was employed for 12 years in HR positions in several industries: IT Recruiter in Rotterdam-NL (Alpha Computer Diensten / ING), London-UK (Matrix), The Hague-NL (Crest Hotels), staffing manager (ASB/Medical) and as interim HR coordinator for nursing homes in Rotterdam (Humanitas).
