Linda Kempes
Executive Director

Originally from the Detroit area, Linda was on her way to college when she was given an opportunity to be mentored by one of the top interior designers of Detroit, Chicago and New York. Linda left college for and went to work as an apprentice in the design industry, pursuing her dream of being a designer.

 After making a name for herself in the residential interior design industry, she moved to South Florida and opened her own Design Studio in Boca Raton. After a decade of success in the design business, she pursued a second passion - antiques. Over the next fifteen years, Linda enjoyed traveling on buying trips and importing from several areas around the world, filling her antique showrooms. Linda’s last antique showroom was located on Antique Row in West Palm Beach.


Personally, Linda always wanted to be a mom, but was told she couldn’t have children. Then at the age of 41, Linda found out she would be a mom after all. She was blessed with a daughter then, a year later, twin sons. Linda parlayed her strong accounting background and management skills into a successful career in business management while juggled motherhood. Linda currently runs a church with four buildings, 23 rentals, five acres and a partridge in a pear tree!
