About Linda O’Brien
Consultant and Creative
I am a consultant and creative who is passionate about helping businesses plan, operate, and evolve. In terms of marketing, I help businesses connect, collaborate, and diversify communication and outreach to support new business. In terms of strategy, I help develop the appropriate administrative infrastructure to empower and sustain growth.
Through my expert services, you will achieve superior results, advancing your business goals.
In 2005 I worked locally for an IT software company, headquartered in Paris, as the Executive Assistant to the Director/ General Manager and former President of the Boston French Library and Cultural Center. I learned everything from liaising with technical support on client-facing issues to corporate administration, bookkeeping practices, and assisting the CPA with quarterly tax reporting for three related subsidiary companies.
After IT, I engaged in a new opportunity with a general surgeon, speaker, and author, who facilitated collaboration with hospital CEOs, board members, and fellow medical professionals. As a consultant, I provided virtual services for client relations, video production and editing, e-publishing, and travel administration for a busy executive who flew over 40,000 miles in a single year.
Performing different roles, learning the how-tos across many platforms, I was ultimately led to a spring-board vision for this new service. To me, this is the next evolutionary level of collaboration, a virtual consultant and creative.
I have an A.S. degree in Business Administration, completed a Technical Writing Intensive at Northeastern University, and studied Business Communications at Bentley University. I obtained an Assistant Teacher Certificate from the Northeast Montessori Institute at Gordon College.
I wrote a paper on the role of an associate writer wearing many different hats published by the Society for Technical Communication in their annual Proceedings publication. Earlier in my career, I worked as an Assistant Montessori Pre-school Teacher.
My personal interests include hiking, biking, arts and culture, travel and the great outdoors.
