Service Coordinator


Originally from Queens, New York, Ellen grew up in the Hamlet of Oyster Bay, on Long Island's North Shore. While in college for Business Administration Ellen started her first career by accepting a job with Macy's and then joining Pottery Barn as a Store Manager in their New England Region.

After leaving retail behind to start her family, she returned to the workforce in NY at the prestigious Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club, Centre Island. There she learned the ins and outs of the boatyard and service side of the marine industry. She also realized that she could combine her love of providing excellent customer service within her new occupation as Boatyard Office Manager. After 11 years at SCYC, she was courted by and joined Marinemax in Dania Beach, Florida as the Executive Assistant to the Director of Yacht Service and later also added the title of Subcontractor Coordinator. Since moving to Florida Ellen also collaborated with Ferretti Group of America for several years as one of only two service coordinators in their North and South American Divisions and with Broward Shipyard as their Office Manager.

Now In her 20th year in the Marine Industry, Ellen continues to strive to provide exceptional customer service to her clients and vendors alike by not just meeting their expectations but hoping to exceed them.

When not at work, Ellen is busy participating in several civic organizations, but most happily spending time with her husband, their four grown children and three dogs.
