Ellen Miller-Goins has lived in Red River, New Mexico, since she was two years old. Her parents, John and Judy Miller, owned Powder Puff Mountain, a now defunct beginner ski area, in the ’70s. Later they founded and developed the Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area. The duo are members of the New Mexico Ski Hall of Fame.

A graduate of Questa High School and the University of New Mexico with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing, Goins worked as reporter and editor of the Sangre de Cristo Chronicle newspaper from 1993 to 2005.

Her journalism training was “on the job” with Guy and Marcia Wood, who owned the Chronicle from 1984 to 2006. She has won multiple awards in writing, photography and design from the New Mexico Press Association and the National Federation of Press Women.

From 2014 to 2015 she was editor, then general manager. When that newspaper ceased print publication, Goins became news director of the Chronicle’s website. She purchased the Chronicle from El Crespusculo (Robin Martin, whose holdings include The Taos News and The Santa Fe New Mexican) on Dec. 1, 2015.
