“I have known Linda for over two decades in a variety of her jobs as the Fundraising & Marketing Manager for the Guide Dogs Association Northern Territory, as the PA for a number of the City of Palmerston’s Mayors and most recently as the PA for the Northern Territory’s Attorney General, where I worked as the Chief of Staff. Indeed, I recruited Linda to this job knowing the high level of requirements for this position and Linda’s capabilities, skill base and personality.
This was an extremely busy office with constant high level demands and an absolute necessity to have full confidence in all of the logistics regarding the Minister’s travel, finances, appointments, correspondence, reporting obligations and running of the office. Each Minister had similar positions and all experienced high levels of turnover and on occasions lack of capacity in their staff. Linda became the longest serving Ministerial PA at this time and assumed a number of other roles to assist with the training, induction, expectations and problem solving in other offices.
Linda learns new systems and processes quickly and has a very wide experiential base. She is diligent, industrious, confidential and honest and can make valuable contributions to discussions in those other areas which do not fall within her direct responsibilities. She is a valuable asset in any organisation she works in and is loyal to the corporate direction.”

“I worked with Linda for a number of years as a colleague and also engaged her to undertake some work for me personally.
Linda is highly skilled at her work and produces excellent quality in a timely and professional manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending Linda if you are looking for excellence!”

“I found Linda to be very competent with her transcription service. She was quite sensitive to my transcription requirements and stylised the transcriptions in ways that suited me. Linda was most professional toward the material being transcribed and this made me comfortable using her business.”

“During my 10 years as Mayor of Palmerston, Linda was my Personal Assistant for several years. Her many qualities include accuracy, attention to detail, efficiency, reliability, discretion and loyalty. She made my job a whole lot easier. You could not wish for a better PA!! I wish her every success in her new business venture.”
“I have dealt with Linda on a professional basis for almost 20 years in my capacity as Commanding Officer of the Second Cavalry at Robertson Barracks and later as both a local MLA and Minister and Chief Minister of the NT.
Linda exhibits the very best qualities of an Executive Secretary. Her communication skills are exemplary and she is highly reliable and discreet in dealing with others. I can confidently state than anyone who utilises her skills will be fully satisfied.”
The Hon Denis Burke MLA
