ABOUT LINDA - Purveyor of Fine Living, Simple Pleasures, and a Life-Well-Lived
A New Englander by ancestry and by choice, I’m a wife to my best friend Benjamin, mother and step-mother of five grown children, and I believe in charging through life with a smile and sense of humor. Life goes by too fast, so why not make every day as fun and enjoyable as we can? Right?
A bit about me:
My passion for New England’s towns, historic properties, living life to the fullest, and curating a full life has been evident from an early age. I enjoy sharing with others with hopes of inspiring them to find their own vision of fine living, no matter how simple or grand.
I am a life-long entrepreneur, trained lifestyle expert, and small business marketing consultant who has been in the business of promoting the art of living a life-well-lived and teaching others how to add a touch of fine living to their lives. My entrepreneurial career has always included a focused business goal of proving that visual presentation can make a difference in how one feels or reacts within seconds. This includes designing a room, planning a party, or presenting ones self to the public.
I’m the creator and publisher of New England Fine Living magazine, a glossy coffee table publication showcasing life in New England inspired by New England’s refined side. I'm a trained interior designer and event stylist, was the owner of an interior design studio and home and lifestyle store for over 20 years.
Several articles have been published about my silent marketing techniques and how I incorporate the five senses into both residential and business spaces. Past work has included planning large public events to introduce local businesses to consumers, fundraisers for local non-profit groups, or introducing national luxury brands and New England brands to the public online.
My life as an interior designer and small business marketing professional has generated numerous awards for my company including The Massachusetts Retailers Award for Visual Merchandising, several Readers Choice Awards, a local Rotary International award for creating and producing their most successful fundraising event... their masquerade balls, which are still on-going today.
My company or my work has also been in Entrepreneur Magazine, Success Magazine, North Shore Living Magazine, South Shore Living Magazine, Gate House Media, Salem Evening News along with Boston-based television stations and radio shows. A fun fact is that I was also selected and offered inclusion on two national interior design shows - HGTV Designer's Challenge and Design Star, but that's another story in itself.
