Biography

Ellen Magnis Chief of External Affairs

Ellen is the Chief of External Affairs responsible for community outreach and education for the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center. She also oversees the agency's marketing/public relations efforts and legislative relationships. She is responsible for the organization's annual internationally-recognized Crimes Against Children Conference that draws 3,000+ professionals for a weeklong training, including acquisition and retention of key partners and sponsors. Partners in this effort include the FBI, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the US Marshals Service. Corporate supporters include Facebook, Yahoo, Paypal and AOL.

Prior to working at DCAC, Ellen was a long-time leader at the national center of the American Heart Association. Over a period of almost eight years of service, Ellen was responsible for national strategic alliances, developed and oversaw programs that supported national healthcare quality in hospitals and physician practices, and acted as the external face of the organization's American Stroke Association, requiring frequent presentations across the country at local, state and national meetings. During her tenure, she orchestrated a national alliance with The Joint Commission, launching a nationwide hospital certification program to improve care for stroke patients. This included the development of associated professional education products and programs to help hospital-based physicians and nurses meet certification requirements as well as cross-functional team collaboration on national marketing and awareness efforts that could be translated for local implementation. She managed numerous relationships with national funders on a variety of programs and projects as well as a tri-agency relationship with the American Cancer Society and American Diabetes Association.

In 2012, Ellen was selected as one of 20 non-profit and academic leaders in Dallas to participate in the year-long TWU Public Voices Thought Leadership Program led by The Op-Ed Project. The goal of the experience was to have more women “narrate the world” by lending their voices to discuss their causes on a national stage. Because of The Op-Ed Project, Ellen was privileged to participate in an international webchat with Naomi Wolfe, hosted by The Guardian, to discuss the topic of child sexual abuse following the conviction of Jerry Sandusky and also had an Op-Ed published in the US version of The Guardian. She is now also a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post.

Ellen has an undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Psychology, Sociology and Research) and an MBA with a concentration in Organizations and Strategy from the University of Texas at Dallas.
