Leadership Team & Company Financial Aid Lead

Ames, Iowa City & Plymouth, Iowa and Minnesota

Linda is a graduate of our Ames Cosmetology Program and licensed Cosmetologist, Electrologist, and Educator and is a Redken Color Certified Stylist. Linda serves all 3 Campuses as an Owner, Company Inventor Manager, Company Financial Aid Lead, and member of the PCI Academy Leadership Team. The PCI Academy Leadership Team is dedicated to mentoring the leaders within our company, being innovative, spreading kindness to those we interact with, and being driven while maintaining, upholding, and fostering our Core Beliefs. Our Core Beliefs as a company are: 

  • Our Students are our #1 Guest
  • Bettering our Best
  • Passing it along
  • Team Culture
  • Living in the Top 20

Linda leads our Financial Aid Team and spends her time coaching each member of the Financial Aid and Service Experience Coordinator Team while also overseeing the day to day operations of the Financial Aid Department. We are proud to offer our students Financial Aid to assist them with paying for their programs and are only able to do this because of our amazing Financial Aid Team and our accreditation through NACCAS since 1981. Linda also leads and coaches our Inventory Specialist Team and helps to ensure we have the products and tools necessary to perform the Services and Classes here at PCI Academy.

For over 27 years Linda worked as a Stylist behind the chair at Finesse Spa Salon where she was apart of the Ownership Team and Associate Trainer where she helped train and pass along the technical, business building, and customer service skill needed to build a successful career as a Service Provider. These years of experience teaching and utilizing the Summit Salon systems and beliefs has helped Linda mentor and grow leaders in both Finesse and PCI Academy where she has truly made an impact on both companies. Linda is extremely passionate about teaching our students how to recommend the appropriate products and services that help our guests achieve the looks they are striving for. When we asked Linda what she wanted perspective students to know about PCI Academy, here's what she said: "PCI Academy will always be your cheerleader, before, during and after your educational time with us! We love to hear about your journey and what other adventures you are ready for. It is our pleasure to help you Learn Earn and Lead. The business training at PCI Academy is amazing and will help you achieve your goals in our industry and in your personal life as well."

When Linda isn't working she loves to spend time with her family and friends, exercise, being active outside, and expanding her already impressive cooking skills (trust us when we say they're impressive)!
