Linda Weaver ’74 (psychology)Linda Weaver ’74

Linda graduated from SUNY Purchase with the second graduating class in 1974. The degree conferred was in PsychoBiology. Somehow attending graduated school and working in the medical research profession was just not it. So about five years or so after graduation Linda made an abrupt turn and ended up as an assistant to the woman who started this over 40 -year career as a Voice-over Agent, Angela Dipene. Five years at CED, next came 13 years at J Michael Bloom and in 1999 Access Talent was founded. It remains, as its original mission statement declared, a small, forward thinking boutique agency. Linda has always chosen the less traveled road and that credited to the incredible education gifted to her at Purchase.
