Ellen joins HSI from The Hartford’s Sales Excellence division. Prior to joining The Hartford, Ellen worked with a major carrier for many years and served most recently in management. She brings extensive knowledge of the regulatory process, supplemental insurance industry as well as consultative sales practices.
A Passion for Education
The supplemental insurance industry is not the only area in which Ellen has experienced professional success. An admitted attorney, Ellen’s area of legal expertise lay in the areas of White Collar Crime, Fraud and Investigations. After establishing a reputation for achievement in the legal field, she was recruited by the leading legal global publisher, LexisNexis. Ellen then honed her consultative skills, and later management skills.
Her professional passion, however, lies in the field of education. Soon after graduating from the University of Connecticut, she earned her Masters Degree in Teaching. Later, she would also earn her Juris Doctorate from Pace University School of Law. A certified teacher, Ellen was employed as an adjunct professor for 14 years with Albertus Magnus College. While at Albertus Magnus, she designed curriculums and instructed a variety of courses for Associates, Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students including Ethics and Business Law.
Ellen’s passion for education is apparent. She has studied at some of the most notable learning institutions in the world including Oxford, Trinity and Yale. A published author, Ellen’s most recent work is the Voluntary Benefits Specialist Handbook. While working as part of the Sales Excellence team, Ellen was assigned the daunting task of independently researching and writing a text for the designation program. It is this book that the course of study was built upon.
Ellen resides in Hadlyme, Connecticut.
