CEO & Co-founder
Linda’s passion for her field, extensive experience and relentless positivity are a boon to all she works with. She leads her team to consistently provide results that are meaningful and measurable. Linda, speaker, author, and a widely-recognized expert on digital marketing, discovers new directions and strategies to explore and navigate this ever-changing landscape always with a vigilant eye on what is on the horizon.
As a young marketer in the late 1990s, Linda had a huge passion for the internet. Particularly, how a novel area of expertise called search engine optimization could level the playing field for small business. In the early 2000s, she took the plunge and started her first business as an SEO consultant, launching a career that would span two decades and cement her status as a pioneer in the industry.
In 2005, Linda co-founded Pure Visibility, one of fewer than a handful of SEO-focused agencies in the state at the time. Over the years, Linda and Pure Visibility have been recognized with multiple industry and business awards, including 2006’s Grant Thornton Leader and Innovator of the Year, 2007’s Best Small Business by Michigan’s SBDC, one of 2008’s Top 10 Michigan Business Women, by the National Women Business Owner’s Association (NAWBO), Michigan’s Fifty to Watch list, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, Ann Arbor SPARK Fast Track award, and Entrepreneur of Distinction by Corp! Magazine in 2010.
Pure Visibility would write a chapter on Paid Search in the O’Reilly book Website Optimization in 2008. Pure Visibility was among the first agencies in the country to be Google certified. Pure Visibility was also one of the first awarded the Premier Google Partner status in 2016.
