Erica Linnell – Executive Director
Erica grew up in northern New Mexico with a love for the Rocky Mountain life. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon, intending to pursue a career in medicine. But as her father liked to note, she took a “slight detour” after instructing her first wilderness expedition for the National Outdoor Leadership School. That was 17 years ago and she has worked at NOLS in a variety of capacities ever since overseeing various programs. Beyond her NOLS career, Erica directed the Grand Targhee nordic department for 5 years, creating the Targhee Telemark Festival. Additionally, Erica has been an avid volunteer for a wide variety of local non-profits and served as a board member for Teton Valley Trails and Pathways. Erica lives with her dog Rue in Victor.
