Gabrielle Claiborne and Linda Herzer have over 30 years of experience working in the corporate world, designing curriculum and providing training. Gabrielle, a transgender woman, brings to clients her knowledge and life experiences working in corporations and as a successful business owner. Linda, a cisgender (non-transgender) woman, brings her understanding of the questions people may have if they are unfamiliar with the transgender experience.
