Linda was born and raised in Zimbabwe. The first and only girl in a family of five, she has had to continually strive to overcome the cultural norms of the country of her birth which place menâ€™s education ahead of that of women. She moved to the Bay Area in 2006 after spending 5 years in Bermuda and inevitably caught the entrepreneurial bug leading to the founding of her own firm. Linda has two daughters and is an avid golfer who shares her love of golf with her husband and girls most weekends.
