We Create a World That Works Better


Member Spotlight

ATD SC's June Member Spotlight is Linda Payment

Linda Payment is originally from Michigan and moved to South Carolina after graduating from nursing school and marrying in 1982. She and her husband have a grown son and daughter.  

With almost four decades of experience at Prisma Health, she has continually evolved within the organization. After 34 years as a children’s residential psychiatric nurse, she transitioned into the role of LMS Coordinator in 2019 before embracing the opportunity to take on one of two newly established Content Developer positions within Learning and Organizational Development in 2020. Driven by a commitment to personal and professional advancement, she pursued a master’s certificate program in Instructional Design and continues her growth with platforms like LinkedIn Learning and more recently enjoying participation and collaboration in ATD SC to enhance her effectiveness in the Talent Development industry.

Her extensive background in psychiatric nursing has equipped her with invaluable skills that seamlessly translate into her role as a Content Developer on the L&D team. Collaborating closely with instructional designers and sometimes leading her own projects, she leverages her psychiatric nurse experience, allowing her to excel in active listening, consider diverse viewpoints, simplify complex concepts, and foster empathetic learning experiences tailored to meet the needs of diverse learners. 

South Carolina ATD has many opportunities for presenters to showcase their talent. 

We are looking for local and national presenters to help build core skills, share best practices and innovations, and lead the way in trends affecting the Talent Development industry. Most importantly, we are looking for proposals to provide participants with a learning experience that offers direct professional application. Content may be delivered either in-person or virtually.

  • Designing Learning
