Happy Clients


“As a contractor for the Building a Better Colorado project, Linde’s energy, professionalism, and enthusiasm were extremely helpful in engaging our audiences of community leaders across Western Colorado.  I wouldn’t hesitate to call on Linde’s services again in the future.”

Reeves Brown, Project Coordinator, Build a Better Colorado

“Linde’s enterprising personality and passionate drive blends seamlessly with her ability to connect with others in an inclusive and engaging manner. Her balance of getting the job done and building relationships leads to successful results.”

Sarah St. Martin, Foster Care Supervisor, Foster Care of Mesa County

“Linde’s strategic plan provided a roadmap from beginning to end for Family Health West as we embarked upon our hospital expansion fundraising efforts. She worked effortlessly with our staff and board members to craft a personalized vision and strategy while ensuring that our partners on our project understood the implementation steps necessary.”

Stacey Mascarenas, Director, Family Health West Foundation

“The recent Western Slope Navy Week will end up as one of the, if not the single, most successful campaigns of any of the Navy Office of Community Outreach’s efforts. Grand Junction, as a host city, was easily our smallest market this year, yet ended up with one of the largest reaches in terms of key metrics. Despite a relatively isolated market size of about 130,000 residents, we were able to generate over 6.25 million impressions between in-person attendance at events, traditional media outreach (print, broadcast, online), and social media analytics. By our measurements, over the course of the Navy Week, we were able to reach each resident of the Western Slope nearly 50 times. None of this would have been possible without the concerted efforts of Linde Marshall of Purposeful Colorado. I would absolutely recommend her for any public affairs planning efforts in the Western Slope, and hopefully she’ll be willing to take us on again when we return for another Navy Week!”

Matt Everett, Senior National Security Analyst, General Dynamics Information Technology Inc.

As a lifelong Coloradan with deep public policy experience, Linde has a fundamental understanding of issues Coloradans face. Her work on the Colorado Capital Conference is a perfect pairing of her experience in government relations and her ability to execute the big picture through details. For the past five years, Linde has delivered a conference for Coloradans of all political stripes to travel to Washington, D.C. to interact with their elected officials and come home energized, re-engaged and optimistic about the future. Linde is a doer and she knows how to get things done.”

Tim Foster, President, Colorado Mesa University

“On very short notice, Linde with Purposeful Colorado was able to seamlessly transition onto GJEP as a contractor to help us plan, organize and execute the Western Colorado Economic Summit. Linde knows the community intimately, is able to see the big picture, navigate the political intricacies, establish trust, and get the job done. We loved working with her!”
