Ellen Hecht (2016-2018)

Ellen became enamored with the Northwest during a Seattle overnight, enroute from her home in New York to an Alaska vacation. After spending many a cold, east coast winter, the lure of perennial gardening almost year round sounded like an opportunity that was too good to miss. So 25 years ago she relocated to Capitol Hill where she soon found a refuge as a volunteer among the amazing tropical plants at the Volunteer Park Conservatory.
Her career in international travel has allowed her to share her passion for discovering nature and gardens in far off lands with may adventurous travelers. It was during her first NHS Meet the Board Tour -and the opportunity to peek into people's gardens closer to home- that she realized she needed to be a part of this organization.
In addition to NHS, she is an active Master Gardener, volunteering at the Washington Park Arboretum clinic, Magnuson Children's Garden and other gardens. She credits her great-grandfather, who was a senior gardener at Brooklyn's Prospect Park in the early 1900s, for passing on her (mostly) good gardening genes.

Ellen Hecht (2013-2015)

Ellen Hecht credits her great-grandfather-who, according to family lore was the head gardener at Brooklyn's Prospect Park-for her love of nature and interest in all things botanic. Moving from NY to Capitol Hill 20 years ago, she quickly found refuge at the Volunteer Park Conservatory where she did a stint as board president while falling in love with orchids and other tropicals. In order to support her insidious plant habit, she identified the travel biz as the most effective way early on.
