About me


Linda Barrett is a native Ohioan with a long-term commitment to education and the field of aging. She graduated with honors from Miami University with a bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication and a Master of Gerontological Studies degree. Linda has held many diverse positions in management, public relations, and training.


After a 33-year federal government career with the Social Security Administration, Linda took early retirement to embrace what became an 11-year caregiving commitment to her mother.

Linda has now shifted focus into helping individuals, companies, and communities shed light on the subject of aging, cultural diversity, and workplace communication. 


Early on and throughout Linda’s career with the Social Security Administration, I witnessed first-hand her resourcefulness and ingenuity. She was promoted to progressively responsible roles, including 15 years in management positions. For six years, Linda was a Public Affairs Specialist in the large Cleveland market. She was the face of the agency, serving as primary spokesperson, television and radio guest, and author of a monthly column in the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.


Linda executed her duties with tenacity, poise, and sophisticated communication skills. She was one of only eight employees in a six-state Chicago region certified as a diversity trainer to travel and educate 6,000 employees. Linda was selected based on her leadership, communication, and employee development skills, including her commitment to building and retaining a diverse workforce and creating an inclusive workplace environment. She leaves behind a proud legacy that reflects her commitment to personal growth, self-development, and the development of others. "
