About Ellen

Becoming a docent gave me the chance to be part of a friendly, curious, enthusiastic group who wanted to learn all they could about art and to engage a wide variety of audiences. I look forward to meeting docents from all over the US and Canada with the NDSC.

My Connection with the NDSC

The first symposium I attend was in San Francisco 2013, I was amazed at the variety of people and the richness of the workshops offered. Next I attended the symposium in 2017 in Montreal and felt the thrill of being with over 400 volunteers from all over the US and Canada. Everyone was so friendly and had something unique and helpful to say about being a docent. At that symposium, I was able to join the Board as a Regional Director and begin telling nearby museums about these remarkable meetings!
