Drawing on her expertise in accounting, business management and organizational leadership, Linda has been providing business consulting and financial services to small and medium-sized businesses for the past fifteen years. She leverages her first-hand knowledge of the demands of business ownership and employee management to create a holistic strategy for achieving her clients’ financial and business goals. This is the hallmark of her approach with clients.
Linda entered the world of accounting as the Firm Administrator of a growing accounting corporation in the Bay Area. A fast learner with a focus on results, she assisted in the successful development of the firm and played a pivotal role in its acquisition by American Express Tax & Business Services.
Because her passion has always been small business environments, Linda blended her life experiences and became a first-time business owner when she successfully opened Caffe Sumatra in the mountain resort town of Twain Harte. Five years later, Caffe Sumatra was sold for a significant profit.
Linda’s desire to share the depth and breadth of her knowledge with other entrepreneurial businesses prompted her to launch Emerson & Associates. Within a short period of time, her company has earned a reputation as the go-to business service firm and today she currently advises three dozen clients in a variety of industries.
For recreation, Linda enjoys spending time in the great outdoors with friends and family. She is an avid kayaker, skier, and gardener but her greatest joy is spending time with her two young grandsons.
