Ellen McNeilly

Treasurer and Membership

When she first saw Orient in 1986, she knew she had to have a home there. Ellen loved NYC and her career, but she grew up, went to college in Massachusetts and spent every summer on Cape Cod. She longed for that sense of community and closeness to nature. In 1987 she found it in an Orient house where she has happily embarked on many renovations.
