As a College Planning Center Test Prep Coordinator and a resident of Granite Bay, Linda enjoys assisting students in maximizing their SAT and ACT test scores. Linda has mentored students at the college level previously and has passion for data!
As a graduate of Clemson University, and certified as a clinical microbiologist, Linda’s first career included working at Duke University Medical Center as a microbiology laboratory supervisor and lecturer for medical school students. After moving to Sacramento, she became a clinical microbiology data analyst for a local medical device manufacturer. She has written numerous scientific articles documenting the results of her data analysis to the scientific community; her claim to fame is that she discovered a clinically significant bacteria – quite an accomplishment!
Linda has had personal experience with The College Planning Center, as her sons were recipients of the Center’s counseling. After her retirement as a scientist, and with her admiration of the work performed at the College Planning Center, Linda was thrilled to join the team to advise on the test prep process and assist students in the achievement of their full potential.
