Director of Business Development
"Sedona was my vendor of choice for over 10 years in my previous position. Sedona truly partners in an open and collaborative manner, and I knew I would enjoy working for them because they shared my approach and passion for learning outcomes!"
Linda Hainlen is the Director of Business Development at Sedona Learning Solutions. Linda brings more than 25 years of proven experience as an EHR software training manager, and enjoys working with designers and instructors to develop the best solutions for Sedona's clients. One of her favorite parts of the job? Seeing the "lightbulb" moment—that moment when training really clicks for users.
Before joining the Sedona team, Linda served as Director of Learning Solutions for IU Health in Indianapolis, Indiana for 18 years. During that time she was responsible for end-user training for all EHR implementations in IU Health facilities across the state. Under Linda’s leadership, her division at IU Health was awarded the highly prestigious ASTD Best award in 2011.
Linda is a Kirkpatrick Certified Facilitator, and an international author and speaker. Her works include a white paper co-written with Jim Kirkpatrick on the topic of healthcare, and an American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) Infoline on “Designing Informal Learning” that made the top 50 best sellers and was translated into 83 languages.
In addition to her passion for healthcare education, Linda loves cooking, piecing quilts, traveling (cruises in particular!), and spending time with her family.
