“Everyone here plays an important role”
Linda Burwell began working with Hospice of Redmond in 1995 as a computer consultant. Over the next 18 years, she was able to watch the organization touch the lives of many people facing terminal illnesses. Seeing a need within the industry, Linda wrote a computer program that was used to support the many services offered within a hospice setting.
Linda felt inspired after seeing the laughter and tears that the team at Hospice of Redmond shared helping patients and families through difficult times. As an entrepreneur, Linda realized that if she were to ever go back to work for another company, she wanted it to be Hospice of Redmond.
In 2015, the opportunity to become a full-time part of the team presented itself and Linda stepped forward. As Finance Coordinator, Linda is responsible for managing every financial aspect of the organization, including financial reporting to the Board and government agencies. She finds her work to be both fulfilling and challenging.
While she works in the background, she is an integral part of a team that helps patients and families find peace during some of the most trying circumstances.
Outside of work, Linda loves to play outside. Depending on the season, you can find her hiking, skiing, riding motorcycles, gardening, and skydiving. She’s done 1,410 skydives to date! Her position at Hospice of Redmond has given her life more balance. She is now able to follow her passion at work and find time for her joys at home.
