Linda Rousseau holds a leadership role at a Fortune 50 company and leading health benefits provider. Linda was born with a physical impairment causing her to be wheelchair-bound for most of her early childhood. She grew up on the east coast in an underprivileged neighborhood facing financial, safety, health, job, and educational challenges. In spite of these apparent barriers to entry, Linda embarked on her quest to not only establish but enjoy a very successful career and reputation through her commitment to excellence and building high-performing professional teams.
Linda’s passion and fulfillment come primarily from her volunteer work with Dress for Success helping others launch their careers to achieve self-efficiency and economic independence.
Linda founded and chairs the Dress for Success Leadership Program. Linda holds a bachelor’s degree and has a Project Management Professional Certification (PMI). Linda is currently working towards continued growth within an existing job role, continued volunteer partnership with a nonprofit business, and looking into possibly growing her own small business, bringing to reality those “Hopes & Dreams” while inspiring others.
