Linda Ross

Senior Director, Strategy and Development
City of Refuge

There is an undeniable joy on our campus that radiates hope in the midst of despair.

Linda Newton has been the Senior Director, Strategy and Development at City of Refuge for approximately one year. She plays an integral role in the overall growth and development of existing and new programs. Linda earned her Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Georgia and previously worked as the Director of Development for Georgia Center for Opportunity.

Linda brings a strong background in Collective Impact and has training in technology, instructional design strategy, and implementation. Although Linda suggests there is “nothing dramatic” that makes her uniquely qualified for the position, her willingness to serve with inherent humility places her in a class of her own.
