Linda is an insurance geek and a marketing geek. Her insurance and marketing experience spans 30+ years. As a previous agency owner and licensed investment advisor, Linda managed new business development, agency branding and networking.
Her professional experience includes (in no particular order):
- Sales and marketing strategies
- Implementing management concepts

Linda cut her teeth in her father’s insurance agency in the mid-1980’s with a typewriter, carbon-copy paper forms and a mad dash to the post office to snail-mail applications via certified mail!
Linda was determined to blaze her own trail after college and start a new adventure. In 1990, she found herself in Atlanta and dove headfirst into a successful career. Guess which industry? You got it! INSURANCE. What a happy accident!
Linda’s new career was with a reinsurance corporation as an Ocean Marine Underwriter. After 9 years, she returned to Sleepy Hollow and re-joined her father’s agency. She assisted with technology upgrades, building the brand and networking with community and business organizations to expand the agency’s visibility.
In 2000, Linda earned her professional licenses including Life & Health and Property & Casualty Broker and 6 & 63 securities licenses.
In 2009, Linda discovered social media and was hooked. Her talent at building business using the 21st century tools, alongside old-fashioned selling and networking efforts, resulted in an 800% increase in revenue.
Linda has been professionally recognized by various organizations including 914Inc.Magazine, Westchester County Business Journal, Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce, American Association of University Woman, Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Westchester Magazine and Institute of Applied Human Dynamics.

Rocker. Writer. Banker. Manager. Director.
Multiple careers across decades-long timelines only begin to define Trevor. He was a writer and musician in his teens and twenties. Manager in the retail trade in his late twenties. Banker…including Manager and Sales Director…in the ensuing 30 years of his career in mortgage financing.
These days Trevor resides out in the country in Roxbury Connecticut. Music and Wordsmithing are more than ever his craft and livelihood. Yet he hasn’t left behind the standards he developed in his mortgage financing career, including a severe attention to detail and a desire to provide access to credit when Banks, Underwriters, and the general population of the financing world tell business owners that dreaded word, “No.”
Sing me a song and find me that financing I need to grow my business. Later on, write me some words to make my business shine. Yes, this sounds like a song. The kind of song one of Trevor’s clients may sing.
