In Linda Manley's 35-year career, she has served as an Army Nurse, spent 25 years as a flight nurse in Central Ohio, and 13 years as an emergency nurse practitioner. Her interest in NDEs began when a teenager survived a cardiac arrest and vividly described aspects of his resuscitation he could not have known. Linda has studied near-death experiences extensively and published in a professional journal. What she has learned about this subject fundamentally altered her viewpoint on death. With a personal goal of increasing awareness among health care professionals, Linda has spoken to over 15,000 people around the country about near-death and related experiences.
