Linda grew up in Peru and Mexico, then became an attorney and international business woman. She has worked as General Counsel/Chief Compliance Officer for 3 multinationals and is a dedicated and passionate collaborator and architect for change. A well-regarded speaker, published best-selling author (Solutionaries—You are the Answer!) and educator in the field of Sustained Leadership, Linda is committed to models that recognize the significance of social responsibility to a world in need.
Always wanting to serve her family and community, she became interested in the nonprofit sector, helping underserved women all over the world. As a strategic business advisor with a particular focus in the social impact space, she helps individuals through her Solutionaries Academy find work that leaves a positive impact, but is also financially fulfilling. She also founded WGN Global Fund, a women’s business networking group, which specializes in programs to educate the next generation of women about sustainable leadership, and it offers financial assistance to women creating socially responsible business.
Having recently moved back to San Diego from Austin, Linda wants to be very intentional about where she can both learn and add value. She believes Rotary is a wonderful group of kindred spirits and a great opportunity for her to continue to serve. Considering all of Linda’s former addresses have contained two 3s, she feels very at home already in Rotary Club 33.
