About Leaven Coaching
Leaven Coaching knows you have an important vision and a whole lot of passion to make your school, your church, and the world better. Whether you lead a school district, a school, a church or a team in your organization, when you identify, understand, and live into your brilliance, the impact on your team, your school, your church , and your community is massive. Now is the time to unlock your genius! Everyone has natural gifts and talents. Unlocking your genius could mean the difference between success and stagnation. Building on your strengths, vision and unique talents with greater impact than you ever thought possible is where Leaven Coaching comes in.
Every organization, team and leader has their own unique challenges, goals and human dynamics issues that usually aren’t well-served with the “one size fits all” cookie-cutter programs offered by other consultancies. Leaven takes a focused, innovative and highly effective approach to both team and individual development that combines the latest rigorous academic concepts on unlocking human potential with proven best practices gleaned from years of working with churches and schools. We work with our clients to achieve organizational goals and deliver sustained growth.

Believing passionately in the power of coaching to expand human potential, transform lives, and shape new visions for leading is what drives her to work with educational and religious organizations.
Prior to starting Leaven, Linda worked as Assistant Director of the Ark Child Development Center tasked with bringing the center up-to-date with educational technology and digital parent communications. Before moving to Los Alamos, Linda was the Director of School Accountability Support with Albuquerque Public Schools. Her team supported every school in the district to create strategic plans for instructional improvement using data-based decision making.

Linda is committed to listening to the people, organizations, and communities she serves, and to promote racial and social equity in my work. She will continue to work as a person to recognize my own bias and to see the impact that race, poverty, class, language, historical trauma, oppression, and other differences have on my clients, their organizations, and our society. This work is encouraged for organizations in my community.
Linda, her husband John, and their three daughters live in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
