Ellen is the Director of the Leadership Studio at Muskoka Woods. Her life work includes the ups and downs of 36 years of marriage, raising two children, and co-founding an international leadership development initiative; 30 years of organizational, camping and church leadership experience; and ongoing involvement in research projects including an international project about women in leadership… and the joy and heartache such journeys provide.
A Master Mentor with the Real Power Network, Ellen is also an author, and a lifelong student-teacher. She loves to see women grow in their leadership competence and confidence. Her identity as a mother and grandmother is deeply important to her and much of the work she does is for these future generations. She has two children and six grandchildren, all of whom live near her in Muskoka, Ontario.
