Ellen Timmerman-Borer, Chief Development Officer

In 1982, Ellen started her career at Hammer as a direct support professional. Since then, she has served in a variety of roles. In 1999, she joined the Development and Communication Department and in 2006, became our Director of Development.

With the consistent growth in fundraising and outreach, Development and Communications split into two separate departments in 2012, leading to Ellen’s appointment to Chief Development Officer. She now leads Hammer’s fundraising efforts.
