Ellen started working with Hospice PEI over 20 years ago in her first role as Admin Assistant. From there, she has held the position of Executive Director, returning to Admin Assistant and is currently the Queens Coordinator of Volunteers.
In November 2019, Ellen’s own family required the support of Hospice PEI with the passing of her father, Tom. The sadness of this experience was tempered by the incredible support that Hospice PEI volunteers provided. Ellen saw first-hand the significant impact that the care and support volunteers provide can have on individual lives, both before death and during the grieving process.
Ellen and her family are true Islanders’ at heart. While she grew up in East Royalty and Sherwood, Ellen now calls Stratford home with her husband Davis. Between them they have three adult sons, two daughters-in-law and one granddaughter.
