DynaGrace Enterprises (DGE) is 100 percent Women-Owned Small Business and is SBA 8(a) certified and has done several million dollars of DoD government contracts.
Linda was born in a small farming community in Utah, and she was raised by her single mother. Linda never thought about being an entrepreneur even though there were childhood tendencies. From meager beginnings came the experience of how to work hard to achieve results.
Of her family, she is the only one to dream of owning her own business and the only one to have pursued higher education, thus breaking from the family mold and becoming a success in the business world. She has exceeded expectations and never let various challenges and obstacles associated with being a woman impede upon her path to success.
She began her career doing data entry and self-taught herself software development and made a very good career out of administering databases and writing user experiences especially in the scientific areas of bioinformatics, geographical information systems, RADAR and environmental information systems.
Although very passionate about what she does she is often accused being a workaholic. She finds balance in her life by being very close to her family and spends time with them as much as possible. She also finds pleasure in life by traveling and participating in outdoor activities. Linda chooses to share her knowledge and experience with other entrepreneurs and recently began her podcast, 2BizChicks. Follow Linda at www.lindarawson.com
CTO and Lifetime Meteorology Enthusiast
As a child, Scott Stringham loved science including astronomy, meteorology, and geology. You could say Scott was a science geek and he would take that as a compliment. Scott is an award winning landscape storm photographer.
Scott was always interested in photography from a young age and bought his first camera while serving in the Navy. Scott attended college and majored in photography. Scott later became a graphic designer and had the opportunity to learn about color spaces and used his visual talent to create many marketing artifacts. He utilizes Adobe products to enhance and add visual touches to photographs making them more amazing.
Scott is passionate about shooting storms. Although he prefers not to be called a “storm chaser” but rather a “storm photographer,” he still risks everything to get a photograph of lightning. Typically, the scenario is 40-50mph winds, clouds that are dark, angry and dumping rain, sounds of massive thunder and crackling lightning. His hair will be full of static electricity with strikes of lightning too close for most people’s comfort.
By being able to photograph mother nature at her most volatile state, Scott realizes a profound fulfillment of his passions for meteorology, photography, and adrenaline. He has immense respect for mother nature. Because mother nature could strike and Scott would be no more on this earth.
