Purse-onality: Second Century of Leadership Honorary Co-Chair Ellen DeSanctis

We all know any Girl Scout worth her Thin Mints always has a great big Girl Scout smile stashed in her pocket, but what does she keep in her purse? In this ongoing blog series we'll ask Council staff, board members, volunteers and more to share their "Purse-onality"!

If you attended the opening ceremony at the 52nd National Convention last November, then you've seen this week's Purse-onality subject in action! Ellen DeSanctis graced the stage with GSSJC CEO Mary Vitek to welcome Girl Scouts from all over the world to our city. In June she completed her two-year term as president of the council and chair of the board of directors and, without hesitation, jumped right into the role of honorary co-chair for the Second Century of Leadership. Ellen works tirelessly behind the scenes and is a huge asset to our Council. When she's not hard at work on Girl Scout-related projects, she serves as vice president, investor relations and communications for ConocoPhillips. Click the image below to see Ellen's Purse-onality!
