Meet the Culture & Arts Advisory Committee
After moving with her husband to Central Pennsylvania, Linda went to work for Electronic Data Systems, working primarily on AT&T accounts. During her career with EDS, she was a team leader, supervisor, training specialist, and then managed 4 teams of specialized business analysts responsible for working with AT&T corporate customers. She eventually retired as a Project Manager for software development in 1999, and then continued to work in the software development field as a consultant in business processes for several smaller local companies.
After retirement, genealogy became an obsession, and Linda became President of the local genealogy club for several years. She also taught genealogy and computer classes at the public library. It was a natural transition to begin volunteering at the Heritage Library on Hilton Head Island as the Director of Information Technology and as a genealogy class instructor. In June, 2012, she accepted the position of Executive Director of the Heritage Library Foundation, responsible for the financial and day-to-day operations of the foundation. Her project management skills have been invaluable in raising funds and pulling together teams of people to manage the library’s research projects. She retired from that position in 2018.
Linda has also served on the Board of the Hilton Head Island Computer Club, as Vice-president and Education Coordinator.
