Photo of Linda CohenLinda Cohen has been a “kindness catalyst” for over ten years. A nationally recognized kindness expert and professional speaker, her first book, 1,000 Mitzvahs: How Small Acts of Kindness Can Heal, Inspire and Change Your Life, was published by Seal Press in 2011. It is an inspirational guide to a life of gratitude. She delivered a TEDx talk the following year.

Originally from New England, she's lived in Oregon with her husband for more than 25 years. They have two spirited young adult children and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Ginger and Remy. Cohen loves the beach, is crazy about movies though she has yet to attend the Oscars, practices yoga regularly and will never turn down a good cup of Earl Grey Tea.
