What Linda’s nominator said about her

She is our scheduling person here, and she gets hit with a ton of schedule changes all day every day and always does it with a smile on her face. She is the true definition of a TEAM player and more of us should take notes from her. 🙂 She has been with our department for a long, long time which is a huge accomplishment in itself (not sure how many years). People move around so much here at Duke for various reasons but to stay in one department that long says a lot about her.
