After graduating from Fashion Institute of Technology with an associate degree in Fashion Merchandising and Bachelors in Marketing, Linda began her professional life working as a sales representative for numerous designers within the fashion industry before making a transition into the field of beauty, which she found a more welcoming and conducive environment.

Not having formal training in Esthetics or Cosmetology led Linda to create her own position in the field, and so in 1998, New York Institute of Beauty was born. Creating a career school that blends the ease of focus on a single subject while maintaining the standards of a traditional academic institution.

As a hands-on business owner, Linda has recognized the need for a smooth transition from student to professional and therefore created the NYIB Makeup Team, Elite Skin Care Professionals Network, and NYIB Job Placement. Linda continues working diligently to help the school, students, and graduates reach their full potential.
