Linda Lockman-Brooks is the president and principal of Lockman-Brooks Marketing Services in Charlotte, N.C., someone who knows how to build a brand for products and services. But that’s just the tip of an extensive personal and professional resume.
In her own words, Linda is “a leadership coach, a connecter and community volunteer. A proud mom and supportive spouse, someone who loves a good laugh, a good cocktail and NEVER met a stranger. A fan of libraries, the cultural arts and ways to encourage children to dream big. A midwestern girl who found career dreams and her life-long love in the Big Apple, now here to stay in the Queen City.”
Given all that, we wanted to know more about Linda. So as part of our My Passion, My Purpose series, we asked her a few questions about who she is and why she gives.
