Behind every great team is a great leader. A team member recently called Janell “a master at balancing the day-to-day who understands and plans for the long-term.” With an innate capacity for challenging the status quo, Janell helps Milligan look for ways to elevate each event, whether it’s a first-time delivery or tenth anniversary.
Janell is an expert at building relationships and her ability to attract some of the industry’s best talent has helped Milligan develop a collaborative, self-managed culture. She makes sure every event gets the attention it deserves, and everyone gets their turn in the spotlight. Janell joined Milligan in 2003, becoming owner in 2008. She is a graduate of Boise State University and has a Bachelor’s in Finance.
In her personal time, Janell is involved with various anti-trafficking initiatives, which include outreach to hotel staff both locally and in her travels. She enjoys walking her dog on nearby trails, skiing on the slopes and lying in a hammock with a good book.
