Linda Carroll has served as the Director of Advancement for James Irwin Charter Schools since 2014.  She has spent 30 years working with charter and private schools as the co-founder of the following schools:  Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy/The Vanguard School in 1995, Colorado Springs Charter Academy in 2005, and Power Technical, a James Irwin Charter School in 2016.  She was also heavily involved in the creation of Pioneer Classical and Jackson Hole Classical Academy in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (2011-2014).

When she was not starting schools, Linda served as an educational consultant for Steve Schuck/Alex Cranberg (2004-2005), the Managing Director of an investment bank for non-profits, Counsel & Capital (2006-2010), and a Philanthropic Advancement Consultant for National Christian Foundation (2010-2014).  Linda served Governor Bill Owens as the Senior Commissioner of the Colorado State Judicial Performance Commissioner from 2000 to 2008 and served as an Officer of The Colorado Lawyers Chapter of The Federalist Society from 2000-2013.   Mrs. Carroll graduated with a BA from Westmont College, Santa Barbara, CA, and has taken multiple graduate courses in Organizational Management, Business Law, Human Resources, and Marketing from UCCS. 

Linda's biggest joy is her two adult children (both products of Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy), their spouses and her granddaughter.  She enjoys baking goodies while praying for the Colorado Springs Police Department, walking her two Australian Shepherds, and getting together with friends and family.
