Known for her style, wit and street smarts, Linda Menar views change as an opportunity. Having lived and worked in Minneapolis, Pasadena, Santa Barbara and Scottsdale, she’s enjoyed several transitions in her own career—pivots she calls “reinventures.” Each new chapter provides a chance to redefine, redesign and live with intention.
At Navigate Forward, Linda works one-on-one with senior leaders to help them present their best professional selves. She believes there’s no substitute for the confidence and energy you can project when you look and feel great. Her work is confidential, compassionate and focused on accentuating everyone’s unique personality and positive features. Recommendations can be as simple as a different hairstyle, new shade of lipstick or brighter color of shirt, or as detailed as wardrobe consultations and personal shopping.
Linda’s work with executives builds on her consulting business, Reinventure. Founded in 2013, she helps individuals adapt to change by reinventing their living spaces and wardrobe style, all with a spirit of joy and adventure.
Prior to launching image and style consulting for Navigate Forward, Linda served as our Director of Operations for four years. She also worked as founder and CEO of a successful businesswomen’s clothing company in southern California, as VP of investments with UBS and led several other creative business ventures.
In her free time, you can find Linda cooking and enjoying wine with friends, rowing, cycling, or sleuthing for new music and old Porsche 911s. When the open road calls, she usually heads off to Door County, tries to find a way to visit Paris once again and looks forward to an annual sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands.
