Brandi Schmidt, Director of Finance

Brandi is the Director of Finance at LINC. She works with the finance team to apply her nonprofit financial and accounting knowledge to oversee LINC’s business operations. Prior to coming to LINC, Brandi gained exceptional knowledge in nonprofit best practices while working at the Idaho Nonprofit Center. She was instrumental in activating the statewide day of fundraising, Idaho Gives.

Brandi has been volunteering in the disability community since 1988. At the age of 13, through volunteering for the Idaho Youth Wheelchair Sports camp, she learned that an essential part of living with a disability is the living, and not the disability. Brandi has been able to pursue her passion and believes that all people should have equal opportunity to fulfill their desired personal potential through her work at LINC, Family Advocates, and as a foster parent.

Brandi dedicates herself to helping achieve LINC’s mission through promoting the Independent Living Philosophy and encouraging others to live, work, and play in their community. Brandi holds a B.B.A. in Accountancy from Boise State University. She studied at Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s University of Winona. Brandi serves on the Board of Directors for Family Advocates, as well as on their Executive Committee and their Finance Committee. She enjoys spending time with her husband and their six children and volunteering in the community.
