Job: Founder of 2UMedical
Born in: Newport Beach, California
Lives in: Sandy Springs
Family Nurse Practitioner Linda McIver-Duxbury founded a modern rendition of the old-fashioned house call, 2UMedical, in 2012. She saw a void in the market for those with medical needs who were time-stressed or desired privacy, where regular visits to the doctor’s office just wouldn’t work. In order to make her medical concierge service more affordable, McIver-Duxbury brilliantly staffed 2UMedical entirely with mid-level providers, a brand-new healthcare model, which appeals to her Atlanta clients as well as the many actors who now stay in the city while shooting films and TV shows. She’s come a long way from her first job, filing charts in an optometry office in California.
“I recently discovered that one of my dearest friends Lisa Senters-McDermott has ‘healer’ next to my name in her phone—this is a huge honor!” she says.
Outside of work, McIver-Duxbury is involved with various causes. She is the past president of the Woman’s Auxiliary of Piedmont Hospital, chair of the Piedmont Ball, a St. Joseph’s Hospital Ball chair, and is involved in shelter work through Marist High School.
Her Biggest Life Lesson:
