Linda has been an integral part of the team creating the atmosphere and vibe of Third Space. From the inception of the concept, and subsequent layout of the space including the brick and wood paneled walls and industrial furniture, her eye for design and detail shows throughout the space. The cafe is reflective of Linda’s unique style and personality which is a blend of edgy retro with modern hipster. Linda is a true people person and she brought this focus to Third Space through the purposeful layout of the cafe which enhances the ambiance of community and gathering of people in one space, Third Space.
I began my BA at Taylor University college in Edmonton, and finished the rest of my degree at Kings University in Edmonton, with a major in Theology. I have nearly a decade of experience in restaurant and coffee shop management and leadership. I have spent 2 years refining my coffee skills at Transcend coffee in Edmonton AB. It is a local roastery and cafe that prides themselves on quality and consistency. I am passionate about coffee and people. I am excited to be apart of this foundation because it combines my passion for people and coffee. It is essentially my dream job. More importantly, I love starting my day with the most delicious drink; a single cappuccino.
