Linda Williams Pickle, Statistician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in statistics.
In 1966, Ms. Pickle was working professionally as a computer programmer. One of her first tasks was to complete a statistical analysis of lab data for a local hospital. To successfully complete her task, she had to read up on statistics. After becoming familiar with the field, she found that it was a much better suit for her than computer programming. In 1974, she earned a Bachelor of Science from Johns Hopkins University, which was followed up by a PhD in biostatistics in 1977. She later completed postgraduate coursework at George Washington University.
Ms. Pickle began her new career in 1977 as a biostatistician for the National Cancer Institute in the National Institutes of Health. She remained there until 1988, which is when she transitioned into education as an associate professor at Georgetown University Medical School. In 1991, she took on a position as the mathematics statistician for the office of research methodology at the National Center of Health Statistics. She remained there until 2007, advancing to become the senior math statistician for the division of cancer control and population sciences during those years.
Currently, Ms. Pickle is continuing to demonstrate success in her field as the chief statistician at StatNet Consulting LLC alongside working as an adjunct professor at Pennsylvania State University. In light of her numerous accomplishments, she is featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the East, Who’s Who in America, and Who’s Who in American Women.
