GWM Advisor Associate

Linda Clarkson, GWM Advisor Associate

My goal is to build relationships by serving clients with honesty and integrity, and a genuine concern for their lives and daily challenges.
I listen to my clients’ needs and concerns, understand their personal history and help them find ways to protect what they have worked so hard for.

My background is Marketing Communications, earning an MBA and major communication awards. In 2010, my family moved to the beautiful Rogue Valley from Colorado. My husband, kids and I own and operate a small business, Big Town Hero, a sandwich shop in Central Point. Anyone who owns a small business understands the importance of practicing premier customer service, which I offer to all my clients.
