Thank you for your interest in Sisterhood Seminars!

Few topics flush cheeks faster than talking about periods, puberty, and perimenopause. That’s why Linda Sheldone, an educator, registered nurse, and Paramedic of the Year honoree with over 30 years of experience, specializes in sharing the facts of life with sensitivity and a dash of humor.

Unlike her mother’s approach to puberty – which was leaving a book on the kitchen table for her to find – Linda introduces pre-teen girls to adolescence through her “It’s a Girl Thing!” seminar. During this joint parent-daughter experience, girls learn why puberty happens, what to expect, and how to prepare for the changes to come. Since guardians participate too, the seminar opens the door to ongoing discussions about this stage of life.

For moms, there’s even more hormonal hoopla to be had in Linda’s “Hot & Flashy” perimenopause seminar. From body and mood changes to hot flashes, Linda teaches us older girls what’s happening to our bodies as we go through “The Change” into menopause and beyond.

By bringing girls, guardians, and women together in a safe and welcoming atmosphere, Sisterhood Seminars removes the angst and embarrassment of learning about hormonal changes. This promotes a positive outlook among attendees that helps them better prepare and adapt to the physical and emotional shifts they’ll experience.

A resident of Carlsbad, California, Linda spends her personal time hiking and skiing the mountains around the family cabin in Lake Tahoe, attending her daughter Alyssa’s softball games with her retired Fire Captain husband, Mark, and serving as the National Director of Province Alumnae Chairs for Alpha Chi Omega. She has been the Girl Scout leader for Alyssa’s troop since they were kindergarten Daisies, as her mother did for her troop.

“Linda’s seminar was fabulous. The girls learned so much, and Linda provided information in an entertaining and age-appropriate manner.”

Lisa F. – El Camino Creek Girl Scout Troop

“Linda did a puberty class in my home for two fifth grade Girl Scout troops. It was amazing! The girls and moms enjoyed the way Linda handled a subject matter that can be tricky for moms and daughters and made it comfortable and educational. She created a safe environment for the girls to ask questions. I feel my daughter is more confident and secure after the seminar and I would recommend it to all mom and daughters.”

Danielle J. – Troop #4136 Girl Scout Leader

“Thank you for last night’s presentation! It was everything I thought it would be, and more. I think many people can present material, but you were able to create a warm and safe environment for the girls and connect with them so that they felt comfortable discussing so many of the topics you brought to the table.”
