Linda Burridge has over 30 years in leadership and talent development. Given today’s workplace, work and life are often inseparable. Over time, she experienced first-hand how change and transition in our organizations and communities also contribute to a loss of purpose, erode values, lead to poor health, destroy connections to family and friends and leave people in jobs they hate and unprepared for a life’s next chapter. What matters are the lessons she learned on this path and now she can share them with you through her next act as a leadership and personal transition coach. www.nextactsolutions.coach

Gina Murrow was quietly living her life as the mom-next-door until a friend invited her to take a watercolor workshop in 1993. Twenty-five years later she has not only evolved into a full-time artist, but is also the founder of an upright silk painting events company. Five years ago Gina and her husband, David, started Paint A Scarf by the creek in their Alaskan backyard near Anchorage, intending to “teach summer tourists how to paint the northern lights on silk.” The idea caught fire and has expanded to all seasons and is now in Arizona. www.PaintAScarf.com
