“Having worked closely with Linda Jones at my side for 16 years, I can honestly say that she’s extraordinary. Linda joined my business at the time it was a small but thriving speech practice. I had the clinical knowledge and network and Linda brought the business know-how that helped me to grow the enterprise into a successful, medium-size, multi-service agency. I could not have accomplished this without Linda. What makes her extraordinary above all others is her personal integrity, reliability and flexibility. There was no challenge too onerous for her to tackle. I know how lucky I am to have benefitted from her association and can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“In my position as Director of Operations at SCP, I had the pleasure of working closely with Linda Jones for 10 years. Linda’s responsibilities were so far reaching that her titles would be too numerous to mention. Her responsibilities ranged from management of Human Resources, development and management of a client-service data base, billing in a complex arena of government reimbursement, contract oversight and general office services. Linda’s business skills and consummate professionalism are strengths she brings to all she does. She is masterful at thinking a step ahead. Though comfortable at independent effort, Linda was a strong and effective team member. Her efforts ensured our success.”
Susan Baitler, Former Director of Operations, Speech & Communication Professionals
“I highly recommend Linda Jones for all office work / assistance. I employed Linda for over 3 years and can say without hesitation that she was an invaluable asset to the organization. KidAbilities was a very busy private practice that operated for over 20 years, was recently sold, and therefore ceased operations. Linda was instrumental in ensuring smooth operations up until the time KidAbilities closed its doors. She executed her routine tasks (invoicing, billing, creating PDFs, word documents, creating and managing Excel spreadsheets) with skill and pitched in when something new was required (procedure manuals, contract preparation, mailing lists) with efficiency and competence. When something novel or unfamiliar was mandated (not an infrequent occurrence) Linda reached out to the appropriate regulatory body and figured out, correctly, what was required (human resources management).
Linda’s main function was billing for approximately 100 therapy sessions per day for close to 1000 sessions per week. In order to accomplish this, she mastered two different billing systems, one for Early Intervention through NYS the other through Westchester County for Preschool services. In addition, Linda was one of a few individuals who was proficient with our custom created database. Linda managed all the billing while assisting with the regulatory compliance for all necessary documentation for all cases (i.e. prescriptions, IEPs, IFSPs, prior authorizations etc.) as well as assisting with the overall office functioning. Regardless of the administrative task, including writing letters or following up via phone and / or email, Linda was able to perform skillfully, independently, and reliably.
Linda is a mature individual who works well with everyone. She is competent in her skills, willing to go above and beyond, typically anticipating issues that may arise, thereby avoiding difficulties. Most importantly Linda is a trustworthy person of the highest integrity who can be trusted. This is critical when confidential matters require administrative access. Linda understands this requirement and her honesty and ethics make her perfect for any type of independent work. Linda can be counted on!
Her outlook is positive, her skills are many and what she does not know, she learns. She is dependable, responsible, and honest with excellent office skills.
I highly recommend Linda for any position requiring excellent skills for administration.”
