Linda Miller joins the Campus2Career Board of Advisors with great experience in hiring, managing and molding young people to lead productive careers and caring lives. Much of Linda’s career has been in hospitality. For the last two decades, Linda has been managing the Elkhorn Ranch, one of America’s premier dude ranches near Yellowstone Park in Montana. Achieving the relaxed western atmosphere for guests requires highly disciplined activities and responsibilities for the staff which is made up almost entirely of college age individuals.
In her early career, Linda managed the Willits-Hallowell Conference Center at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. After two years of successful P & L responsibilities there, Linda returned to her native Arizona where she assisted her parents on the Elkhorn South family ranch outside Tucson. Cattle, horses and dudes co-mingled.
Linda comes from a storied western ranching family; she is the third generation Miller to be running a complex dude ranching operation in a business sector which is becoming increasing competitive and regulated.
Linda is a graduate of the University of Arizona. She is a highly accomplished equestrian and back country guide. Linda has an extensive network of contacts from a wide variety of professions and brings a unique perspective to our transition services work.
