At our 2013 seminar a new catch phrase was born amongst the staff - "Go see Ellen!" Ellen Stone Benson has volunteered with HOBY Maine for 5 years starting as a Senior Facilitator and moving into the Health and Safety Director role last year. In this role Ellen ensures we are following all our risk management policies and is the keeper of all our medical supplies. As a seasoned member of the staff she is also a critical member of our Operations team usually doing whatever needs to be done before we even know it needs doing!
Ellen lives in Scarborough, ME with her husband Scott and two kiddos, Sam and Caroline. She is a Speech Language Pathologist and co-owner of Speech Therapy Associates of Maine.
It is rumored that Ellen and Sydney went to High School together "a few years ago" and that Syd might have strong-armed Ellen into volunteering but Ellen stays because she really loves the program and the impact it has on ambassadors and volunteers.
Ellen's favorite quote is: "Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid."
Welcome back Ellen!
