Linda Zablotny-Hurst joined PHI in January 2018 as Operations Manager for the Center for Wellness and Nutrition (CWN). Her job encompasses human resources, budgeting and fiscal contract administration, process and system management, business development, and more. She brings to her job a wealth of varied and in-depth skills and experience in operations, administration, and project management from having worked in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors over the past 30 years. After having served as an Assistant District Counsel for US Army Corps of Engineers, and as a consultant and corporate counsel for a multi-national environmental engineering company, Linda decided, in 2003, to move into the non-profit sector and work furthering public interest causes she believed in. She has since built decent, affordable housing as Executive Director of Solano Napa Habitat for Humanity, advocated for environmental protection and sustainability as Deputy Director of Sierra Club California, and, engaged in program and resource development to end hunger and malnutrition as Director of Development for Yolo Food Bank.
Linda’s interest in working for PHI, and CWN in particular, stems from her belief that everyone should have ready access to the basic building blocks for personal wellness: sufficient amounts of healthy foods, tools for good nutrition and self-care, and adequate health care services,…because communities only thrive when all their residents do.
Linda holds a Juris Doctor degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo Faculty of Law and Jurisprudence, and a BA in history from Canisius College.
