Bozeman Lodge Welcomes New Executive Director


Bozeman, MT— March 2021 – Bozeman Lodge Independent and Assisted Living welcomes Elicia Ruiz as Executive Director. Elicia brings 12 years of experience in senior living to her new role.

“I am thrilled to lead a team of amazing individuals and feel so privileged to be back here with our residents. I am so eager to bring my compassion and knowledge to the role of Executive Director,” shared Elicia.

As a third generation and proud Montanan, Elicia lives in the Bozeman local community with her three kids and husband. She is excited to continue serving the Bozeman community by serving seniors and their families.

“Bozeman Lodge has love and joy that has no comparison. Our residents and team members are family. When you put the people you care about first, the right decisions are made. Our residents and families come first,” she explained.
