Linda Doby founded Wellinhand Action Remedies® in 1994 after using her herbal wisdom to find a cure for her own painful tendinitis. The all-natural, topically applied herbal and aromatherapy formula she created is the amazingly versatile and award-winning product that we know today as Therapy Oil. Linda went on to develop our entire range of topically applied herbal remedies, and now as our Director and Product Formulator she continues to formulate and hand-blend each and every one of our products to ensure quality and freshness.
As a passionate autodidact who believes in the value of self-education, Linda is driven by her deep passion for learning and healing. She earned her Master's degree in Deaf Education from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and worked as a special education teacher before turning to the natural products industry. She acquired her vast knowledge of herbs and natural healing from books, herbal masters, and natural healing experts throughout the country and the world.
Linda and her husband homeschooled all of their four children and raised them on a vegan diet. As a devout vegetarian since 1977, Linda's commitment to animal rights naturally extends to Wellinhand®, where she has never involved animals in the production or testing of her formulas. In addition to running Wellinhand®, Linda co-founded the Green Products Alliance, a network of natural personal care product companies dedicated to socially responsible business practices.
Linda recently completed law school as a Virginia Law Reader and is currently studying for the Virginia bar exam. You can read about how she trained to be an attorney without law school at the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners website.
