We are pleased to announce that former legislator, Linda Joy Sullivan, has joined the Campaign for Vermont Board of Directors.
“Linda brings tremendous experience to our board that is really difficult to understate. Her understanding of organizational accountability, fiscal responsibility, and legislative experience are tremendous assets and we are beyond excited to have her join us.”
- Pat McDonald, CFV President
Linda has been a practicing CPA, financial auditor, and forensic investigator for nearly 25 years in Florida, New York, and Vermont. She graduated magna cum laude from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law with distinguished honors in International Taxation and Financial Services. She also acquired an MBA from the New York Institute of Technology, a B.A. in Psychology from New School University, and conducted graduate work in Learning Disabilities & Special Education at the Brooklyn College Graduate School.
As a Certified Public Accountant and member of Professional Responsibilities subcommittee, she has served as a court-appointed expert on Human Trafficking issues and as a receiver for some of Vermont's highest profile receiverships. She is an expert at getting to the bottom of things. Her accomplishments in these areas are really too numerous to list here, but we think it is fair to say that her track record in Vermont is unrivaled.
Linda has also sought to pass on her knowledge and experience, as an Adjunct Instructor of Auditing and Tax at Lynn University. She also served as a Paralegal Instructor and Special Program Director at Southern Career Institute. She has held teaching licenses in both New York and Florida where she taught high school English, Spanish, and Theater.
If her professional record wasn't impressive enough, she has served on over a dozen non-profits - everything from the Bennington County Habitat for Humanity to the Children Survival Network and the Vermont Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force. In 2016 she was elected to the Vermont House from the Bennington-Rutland district and served three terms in that seat. During her time in the state house, Linda was known as a moderate legislator, an independent thinker, and a straight-shooter.
For fun, Linda is a professional Choreographer and Master Tap Dance Instructor (for about 40 years). She lives with her Husband in Dorset, Vermont.
