Ellen has been a key contributor here at Kendal-Crosslands Communities for over 12 years. As the Sales and Marketing coordinator, her smile and ability to make sure everything runs smoothly makes us all look good.  

Ellen has been with Kendal-Crosslands for over 12 years and only recently moved into the role of the Sales & Marketing Coordinator.  Ellen has a BA in Art and Advertising from Utah State University and began her career working at an ad agency in Philadelphia. She’s worked for major healthcare companies including NovaCare, Genesis Healthcare, and now Kendal-Crosslands, bringing her talents and her eye for art with her wherever she goes.

Ellen’s Passion for Experiences And Helping Others

Ellen lives in nearby Exton, but she loves cities, and all the cultural attractions from art and history museums to Broadway shows, and exploring great places to eat and soak in the scenery. Living here in the Brandywine Valley means it’s just a short trip into Philadelphia, New York or Washington, DC to explore all of these experiences with her two sons, and building great family memories in the process.

Ellen’s long love of art has led her to volunteer at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia in Visitor Services. She often meets people from around the world, visiting the museum and loves helping them have a richer experience not only at the museum but throughout the area. That’s not surprising, since she is always lending a hand here at Kendal-Crosslands, whenever anything is needed. Ellen stated “After working here for 12 years, I have to say I love working and meeting all the residents who live here. They have fascinating stories and they are still living their best lives as they age. Our team works well together to reach a common goal and meet the needs of people as they are thinking about the next stage of their lives.”

Ellen’s Favorite recipe

My mother gave me the “red book” Betty Crocker Cookbook when I went to college and I have been making these waffles since then. When my kids were little, and even to this day, we have the most fun making homemade waffles on a Sunday morning. 


2 eggs

 2 cups all-purpose flour

 ½ cup margarine or butter, melted or vegetable oil

 1 3/4 cup of milk or almond milk 

2 tablespoons of sugar

 4 teaspoons baking powder 

½ teaspoon of salt ( I omit salt) 

Heat waffle iron. Beat eggs with hand beater (or you can use a wooden spoon) until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. Pour batter onto center of hot waffle iron. Bake until steaming stops. Makes 7-10 waffles. Enjoy!
