The two year training period involved working on offshore and land drilling rigs whilst completing the Round 2 Well Engineering exams. She designed and was the drilling operations engineer for onshore extended-reach gas production wells in the Netherlands. A move to the UK then involved working for Shell UK in multidisciplinary teams evaluating new business opportunities and also on joint ventures.
Following a career break Linda returned to Mathematics and was awarded an MSc from the University of Western Australia, and then a PhD in a combinatorial question in group theory from Royal Holloway (2009). Whilst at Royal Holloway she completed the InSTiL Teaching Certificate.
