On October 12, 2017, Santa Fe lost one of its avid and colorful local ambassadors, Billie Frank. Billie was a travel writer and blogger who in conjunction with her husband Steve Collins wrote and published, "The Santa Fe Traveler," a blog that was read by many in Santa Fe, in New Mexico and even around the United States. Billie was a concierge at two of Santa Fe's finest hotels for four years and her background in sales, marketing and customer service were evident throughout her respected travel blogs.
