LDAA Announces a New Executive Director!
Ellie comes from the charitable sector, having been the Director of Communications for the CNIB for many years, working on such projects as the Right to Read campaign, which advocated for and secured federal and provincial funding for the CNIB Library in order to make the collection available to anyone with a reading disability. Ellie also has experience in communications and marketing leadership in the federal and provincial governments, including six years as political advisor to the premier and a cabinet minister in Saskatchewan. She has worked with many clients in the non-profit sector including the Alberta Caregivers Association, the Alberta College of Optometrists, the Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton, the Alberta Lung Association and the CNIB.
As someone who also has a child with learning disability, Ellie has experienced the ups and downs of advocating for her child as she navigated the public school system, and is eager to work towards accomplishing the LDAA’s mission of supporting people with learning disabilities achieve their full potential.
