Linda Cale, CSA
Linda’s youngest daughter was diagnosed with a genetic condition as a new born. She saw and felt first hand how overwhelming the process of navigating the options for care, cost, and available resources, while managing the emotional impact of the diagnosis, can be. Through her family's experience with her father's placement in a care facility and both grandfathers’ skilled nursing living arrangements, Linda has seen first hand how the impact of choosing quality care and the emotional and financial components can be challenging for all concerned parties.
Linda has been a successful sales professional for over 25 years, over half of which was spent as a Senior Account Manager for Xerox Corporation in Greenville, SC, twice awarded President's Club,, as the #1 and #2 sales rep for her accomplishments. Most recently she was the Director of Sales for South Carolina Charities, Inc., a non-profit, that runs the Web.com tournament for the BMW Charity Pro-am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. In that role, she engaged senior level management from Fortune 500 and mid-level companies in the Upstate and companies with connections to the Upstate of South Carolina, to pursue and grow new corporate sponsorship, while enhancing relationships with existing sponsors. As part of the executive team, she was responsible for generating revenue to support the local charities such as Children's Hospital of Greenville Health System and Mobile Meals of Spartanburg.
The most critical part of choosing a franchise for Mike and I was franchisor integrity, expertise, and experience in the industry. My background working for a non-profit and the benefits provided for those in need, this industry and association with SCA, allows me to further align my values to be of assistance to others while making a career choice that impacts those we serve.
Linda is married with two daughters and has two bonus children with her husband, Mike. She and Mike enjoy golfing together, cooking, and entertaining friends along with their two German Shepherds, Beagle/Chihuahua mix and cat. Linda has volunteered for local charities as well as the national association for Prader-Willi Syndrome.
SENIOR CARE AUTHORITY COMPANY HISTORY
Senior Care Authority was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.
In 2014, the model was franchised and Senior Care Authority is now a national company with offices throughout the US and Canada. As part of their expansion, they partnered with an eldercare consulting practice who brought another set of senior care services and skills to the company, a great differentiator for Senior Care Authority.
