Once A Soroptimist…Always A Soroptimist ….Spotlight on Ellie Nixon


better ellie

Ellie Nixon’s friend, Linda Gallagher, first introduced Ellie to Soroptimist International Huntington Beach in 2003.  Ellie joined because she believed in our mission, to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment, but, life took over and although Ellie continued to support us at fundraisers and events, she took a leave of absence from the club for about five years.

But now…she is back…and she hasn’t skipped a beat.  As Co-Vice President of Programs, along with Linda Lyons, Ellie leaped back into service.  Being a Soroptimist to Ellie means “being a part of a community of women who help women and children”.

Ellie’s nature is to help others.  A consultant for Heritage Memorial Services, Ellie also volunteers for the Alzheimer’s Orange County as a support group facilitator and advocacy communications.

Ellie loves to read and also must have some kind of connection to Gardnerville and Carson City, Nevada as that’s is where her travels have taken her the last 12 months.  Do you think one of her two grown children, a son who is a transmission re-builder or her daughter, who is a homemaker, may live there?  You’ll have to ask Ellie to find out the answer to that question 🙂

I asked Ellie if she could describe herself in one word, what would that word be and she said, “Doer”.

Welcome Back, Ellie!! We missed you!!
