About Linda

Linda Newsome offers 22 years’ experience in the Healthcare Recruiting industry and specializes in Physician and mid level staffing. She has worked with all levels of healthcare providers from the basic ancillary staff to the neurosurgeons. She has the expertise and background to find the “Best Fit” for both the organization and the provider. She has worked with government contracts, community health centers and all branches of the US Military. A driven professional, who thrives on helping others be all they can be in their personal and professional lives. Never say never and never quit! I believe that everyone has greatness in them, you just sometimes have to dig and scrape off all that life throws at us to find that inner champion! Linda’s motto is to do “whatever it takes!” to get what the client and provider need to make sure all parties are excited about their professional future. Linda started Specialized Healthcare Staffing, LLC in 2018 to start building her own future, instead of always building it for other companies.

Linda lives in Killeen, just outside of Fort Hood (The Great Place) and just North of Austin, Texas with her new husband and 7 children. Linda was a licensed foster parent with the State of Texas for 9 years and adopted 5 children, as a single mother, through the foster care system. She believes in always doing what’s right and “paying it forward”. Four of our children are currently in college and three are still living at home. She enjoys spending time helping others and is very involved in her local community. She developed a women’s empowerment group, called “Women, Wealth & Wisdom” and holds quarterly meetings in Central Texas to promote women in business and to help women, be all they can be. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading and playing with her 10 (yes 10) dogs!
