About Linda Thornton
People always told Linda Thornton that she was lucky. It seemed as if everything always went her way. From the time she was a young girl, she had created a formula that seemed to work for her. She would establish a goal, focus on it, practice positive thinking and then put herself “out there”. She soon found that she could accomplish almost anything she put her mind to.
Armed with only an Associates Degree and her moxie, Thornton has had a successful business career in such varied positions as President of a New York sales representative agency, owner of a gift shop in a historic landmark building in Arkansas, Director of Medical Staff Administration for a large Chicago hospital, published author and Manager of a Catholic National Shrine.
She also cultivated her personal life to reflect her dreams. Whether traveling the world with her family or exploring her environs, she shares her adventures and life stories with a positive attitude and a sense of humor.
“You got moxie, kid!” That old movie line conjures up a vision of the young, tap dancing hopeful who elbows her way to the front line and becomes a star. The word “moxie” is defined as fortitude, determination and grit.
