Meet Linda Chaney
A Local Community & Business Leader
Linda and her husband built a Mobile Mammography business they sold to Advent Health in 2019. This innovative business helped to save hundreds of women’s lives through early detection of breast cancer.
Over 20 years ago, Linda lost her husband to brain cancer, making her the sole provider and a single mother to her two-year-old son. Through faith, family and friends, she found the strength to continue to succeed, leading her to a life of servant leadership in Pinellas County.
Working with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Linda founded a charitible program that joined business and religious communities to help women trapped in prostitution and drug addiction. Through rehabilitation and training, the group helped these women get back on their feet and find success in life.
Linda earned her business acumen while as a marketing director at Home Shopping Network, where she was part of the team that brought the company over the billion-dollar mark and a public offering.
Linda made the leap to a full-time position in the non-profit sector, working at Eckerd College and helping adults complete their degrees, positioning them for better and higher paying jobs.
Shortly thereafter, Linda answered the call to public service, winning a position on the St. Pete Beach City Commission. As a commissioner, she fought tenaciously to protect the pristine beaches, keep taxes low and give residents more control over development. Linda also pressed for funds to rebuild the town’s crumbling infrastructure and established the first-ever Environmental Stewardship Board. She also won the right for residents to have a say on casino-style gambling in their community.
As a St. Pete Beach commissioner, Linda’s service included representing the city at the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, the Pinellas County School Board, the Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Barrier Islands Governmental Council and numerous community planning sessions including New Urban Planning for Sustainable Communities.
Linda is certified by Eckerd College’s Leadership Development Institute and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from the University of South Florida. Linda and her entrepreneurial husband, Bill Yovic, love sailing, enjoying Florida’s outdoor activities, and you will rarely see them without their three rescued dogs.
