~Tanya Denckla Cobb, Director, IEN
I have known Ellen for twenty years, personally and professionally. She has the ability to think strategically
and effectively execute. Her organizational and communication abilities are second to none.
Ellen would be an asset to any organization fortunate enough to retain her.
~Nancy Schiller, President &
CEO, America for Bulgaria Foundation
I have worked closely with Ellen on several projects involving diverse personalities and sometimes contentious issues. Ellen has repeatedly demonstrated excellent management skills including ways of managing people, their expectations and their ability to come eye to eye over difficult topics. Her dedication is always strong, and her kindness and work ethic are unmatched. I cannot more highly recommend Ellen's services to anyone needing help with governance or management matters.
~ Seth Ragosta, Attorney, Flora Pettit PC
Ellen and I worked together at the University of Virginia in the Alumni and Parent Travel program for more than six years. During that time, she made significant contributions, most notably with client data management, customer service, and client engagement strategies. Specifically, she spent four months consolidating dozens of traveler Excel spreadsheets into format for incorporation in the CRM database. She provided a high level of service to our travelers, including remediating very difficult situations during trips. Ellen developed many innovative ways to engage our clients at alumni events, within pre- and post-trip communications, and with various marketing and promotional outreach. I recommend Ellen without reservation.
