Linda Gravely, Office Manager

Linda Gravely joined Davies as office manager after a 32-year career in journalism and public relations. She began her career as a daily newspaper reporter for the Buffalo Courier Express, where in her first year she was recognized as a Runner-Up for the Rookie of the Year Award for the quality of her reporting. Upon relocating to the DMV she began a successful career in Federal service.  As the Public Affairs Specialist for the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC), she wrote press releases, speeches and provided content for the agency’s web presence on the topic of job safety and health.

Linda’s work at OSHRC was recognized by the National Association of Government Communicators for her contributions on behalf of the disabled. For her work in writing a booklet on Simplified  Proceedings at the OSHRC, she received a Hammer Award from then Vice-President Al Gore’s initiative to streamline government.

Linda believes in the importance of giving back to her community.  She has participated in numerous volunteer activities such as serving as a reading, writing, and grammar tutor in the Federal Adopt-a-School’s Program, providing after-school academic tutoring in a religious setting, and many other service activities as a long-time member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. As a proud alumnae and supporter of Northwestern University, she believes in life-long learning and takes every opportunity to learn new skills, such as HTML, project management, and Spanish.
