HCMA’s August 2023 Featured Discussion Group Leader:  Linda Montgomery

Linda hosts our “Newly Diagnosed” education groups. These free online education sessions are ideal for those newly diagnosed (within the past two years) or those new to the HCMA. Linda offers several dates & times each month to make it convenient for all to attend.

About Linda: I am one of seven children, which has taught me how to get along with different personalities, stand up for those who need it, and never forget where I came from.  I’ve had an amazing career in Global Pharmaceuticals over the past couple of decades.  Getting closer to the patients was always my goal, so I changed careers and entered Patient Advocacy as an employee of the HCMA.  As an HCMA employee and a Discussion Group Leader of the Newly Diagnosed, I’ve had the privilege of conducting many of your Intake Calls. I hope I’ve made you feel warmly welcomed into the HCMA community.

While I do not have HCM, I am passionate about helping people with rare diseases and transplantation.  I work as a volunteer for an Organ Donation group.

I live in NJ, and in my time away from the office, I enjoy visiting my son in Dallas, spending time with my English Bulldogs, and being outdoors.
