Get To Know Our Members

Linda Ambalong
Senior Director, Portfolio Administration
American Red Cross

Where is your office located? 
I currently work from home in Payette, Idaho; however, our headquarters is in Washington DC.

How long have you been a member of the IKO Chapter?  A little over a year (there isn’t an Idaho Chapter).  I was previously a member of the Northern California Chapter.

What is/was your primary reason for joining CoreNet Global?  Education, networking, trends

What is one thing other would find interesting about you (personally or professionally)?

Our real estate team has been virtual since inception in late 2013.  I’ve lived in 3 states during my time here.  That did give me less of a learning curve than what slammed the rest of the world in 2020 when so many others were going virtual for the first time.

If you could do any job in the world, other than what you do now, what would that be (ie. your dream job)?That’s a bit hard as I am dedicated to the mission of the American Red Cross, perhaps giving away money.  I have a previous work colleague and also connected at the Summit with people from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation and found what that organization does inspiring.

What are your hobbies? Reading, swimming and snorkeling (when I lived in Hawaii)

What words of advice would you give to young professionals entering into the corporate real estate world today? The huge value to networking locally and globally.  Find a mentor that can show you what questions to ask, additional education to pursue and groups to join.
