Linda pursued her passion of bringing out the best in young professionals — establishing in 2008 the Dulye Leadership Experience (DLE). This transformative developmental program has inspired confidence, vision and motivation in hundreds of aspiring leaders. The DLE’s annual Gen Now Retreat—held in the Berkshires–delivers cutting-edge strategies for career ownership and gritty advice from a dynamic, driven and diverse network of corporate executives, emerging entrepreneurs and respected thought leaders. Additionally, the program’s newsletter, topical blogs, professional network and on-demand coaching broaden perspectives, skills and connections.

She earned degrees from Syracuse University (B.A.) and Drew University (M.A.). Linda and her husband, Roger, enjoy lake living in the Berkshires (MA) with visiting family (3 grown children) and rescued animal and bird companions. Active in her community, she serves on the board of the Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corporation—and actively volunteers as an academic tutor, a hospital pastoral minister, a greeter at the world-renowned Tanglewood Music Center, a leader in the African Catholic community and a local radio announcer. Committed to be fit, Linda rows, cycles, spins, swims, and SUPs. She is on the board of Berkshire Community Rowing.
