March 2024 Employee

EOTM March 2024 Linda Oldham

Pearce would like to recognize Linda Oldham as our March Employee of the Month!

Linda has been working at Pearce for two years and five months and is in our Fitness Department. Linda teaches Silver Sneakers Seated Yoga, Balance & Strength and Yoga. You can find her teaching these classes in the morning on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Linda says, “I enjoy working at Pearce because of the friendly and respectful culture.” Linda loves the members who join her class, especially the ones who start dancing and singing to her oldies music.

Linda began teaching fitness classes in Champaign, IL, in 1986 and loved it. Linda says she joined Pearce’s team after being encouraged by one of the group exercise instructors. Linda says, “I was initially only a participant in classes at Pearce. However, I learned how warm and friendly the members and staff were. One of the other instructors encouraged me to become certified again and teach. A great and rewarding decision for me.”

When Linda is not at Pearce teaching classes, she enjoys dancing, teaching dance classes, golfing, gardening, cooking gourmet dinners and remodeling her home.

A fun fact about Linda is that when she lived in Champaign, she DJed at bars and played music for dancers. She had big crowds on the dance floor and played very fun music.

Linda has one young cat named Torey, who loves to be vacuumed!

Linda’s favorite book is “The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything.” by Stephen M. R. Covey. In this book, he shows how to trust the speed at which it is established with friends, family, students, and coworkers – is the single most critical component of a successful leader and organization.

Three words that Linda self describes herself as: empathic, tenacious and helpful. Linda is always helping members at Pearce!

Linda’s favorite saying is, “In everything do to others as you would have them do to you”.

Thank you, Linda, for choosing to be a part of our Pearce family!
