Linda Rousseau holds a leadership role at a Fortune 500 financial services company. Her career path was impacted by multiple acquisitions within her 30+ years’ experience in the insurance industry. As acquisitions sometimes do, they create a vacuum between jobs which Linda navigated with perseverance and constructive action eventually landing opportunities that expanded her expertise and influence in various operational and IT roles.
Linda was born with a physical impairment causing her to be wheel chair bound for most of her early childhood. She grew up in the ghetto facing financial, safety, health, job and educational challenges. In spite of these apparent barriers to entry Linda embarked on her quest to not only establish but enjoy a very successful career and reputation.
Today, Linda’s passion and fulfillment comes from her volunteer work with Dress for Success helping others launch their careers to achieve self-efficiency and economic independence. www.dfs.com
