Linda Fullerton Hersey, MBA



Journalism background spans legislative reporting, editing at metro papers, and investigative coverage with storytelling and data analysis.

Digital marketing experience focused on large-scale content management – at a new STEM university for the state of Florida, a foundation advancing universal basic income, and a healthcare system.

  • At Florida Polytechnic, I co-founded a campus organization that supports women in science and engineering.
  • At MaineHealth, I oversaw strategy and development of digital consumer content that brought together a dozen nonprofit hospitals on a single platform.
  • At Knight-Ridder, I authored a journalist’s guide to covering Native Americans, with support from the Native American Journalists Association.
