As a founder of multiple mission-focused businesses, Linda has built and led innovative companies to successful exits. After launching and leading two successful startups in the childhood education arena, Linda shifted to the healthcare space where she founded and led PartnerMD, a membership medical practice.

Leveraging lessons learned to redesign healthcare

In her role as Venture Chair, Linda will coach and guide strategy, recruitment and business development for select operating companies built at Redesign. To start, she will bring her expertise to a stealth company that will expand the concept of concierge care into the mental health space. “I’m looking forward to sharing the lessons I’ve learned in concierge medicine, teaching leaders how to do it successfully and showing them how to avoid some of the pitfalls that I encountered early on,” Linda says.

Linda has seen firsthand how concierge medicine models improve access to primary care and help patients take a proactive approach to their health, and she’s excited to see what the future holds.

“Primary care is and always will be an integral part of the healthcare system, and concierge care offers a new way for people to access these vital services,” she says. “I’m enthusiastic about a future where concierge medicine becomes more diverse in terms of specialty and pricing, possibly moving into areas like pediatrics and expanding access through different pricing tiers that cater to patients of all income levels.”
