Linda brings to Wilcenski & Pleat over 30 years of experience in advocating for people with disabilities. She earned her undergraduate degree from SUNY Potsdam and her MSW from SUNY Albany. For over 25 years, she has been organizing the annual conference and actively fundraising for the Prader-Willi Alliance of New York, a nonprofit organization promoting awareness and encouragement for those affected by the syndrome.
In 1993, Linda founded one of the first independent home- and community-based waiver case management agencies in New York, Community Living and Advocacy Supports, Inc., and to this day presides over its board of directors.
Linda is creative as well as involved. She is a blue-ribbon-winning baker (her brownies are the best in the world, no kidding), her friends consider her a gourmand, and she creates beautiful slate carvings that she offers as gifts to friends and family. She lives in Saratoga Springs with her husband, three rescued dogs, one rescued cat, and two rescued cockatiels.
