Linda was praised for her volunteer work with the BC Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, where she serves as a mentor, providing guidance for professionals across the province. She was also commended for working collaboratively and serving as a role model for other UBC employees.

“Libraries are changing dramatically in the new digital environment, and Linda has the difficult task of assessing the needs of staff and users in uncertain times and communicating the right messages at the right time,” said Ingrid Parent, University Librarian. “She works collaboratively with faculty, staff, donors and users, and is extremely well respected for her professional abilities and personal qualities.”
