Ellen Burgess, Education & Outreach Committee Chair

Ellen Burgess is a native New Mexican and Cibola HS graduate who remembers when Coors Road was a highway and the Rio Grande Bosque was full of trashed out party areas. After 15 years in Texas where she worked as an industrial engineer, Ellen returned to NM, settling in the East Mountains. She utilized her organization and outreach skills in previous employment as program manager with a Torrance County non-profit, and she now writes for a local weekly newspaper. Ellen is delighted to have the opportunity to both create and strengthen community partnerships as a new Open Space Alliance board member.
