Get to know more about Sister Mary Ellen Goeller

Monday, 10 August 2020

Get to know more about Sister Mary Ellen Goeller, Executive Director, System Services, in her new role as one of the four new executive directors at The Center at Donaldson.

What drew you to this new role within the ministries of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ?

As Executive Director of Ancilla Systems, Inc. (ASI), there were advantages of me moving into this new role, especially since the employees of ASI and The Center at Donaldson are entwined in their daily ministry.

What have you enjoyed the most so far in your new role?

I knew the other directors because of my work with them in their different roles and responsibilities in the past. While I always knew many of the activities that were happening at The Center at Donaldson, I especially enjoy working together with this group while we now talk about different events, listen, discuss any ideas and concerns, and come to a consensus as a team. We are really trying to make sure that sisters, residents and staff are aware and hear the same information on a timely basis.

What are your beliefs about motivating, influencing, serving and leading others?

As a PHJC, I/we are grateful to see the great leadership and care for the earth, as well as, everyone living, working and coming to The Center at Donaldson to see what a special place it is. I am so grateful and know there are many gifted individuals who share in our charism and we will journey into the future together.
