Ellen Bagley joined the Grand Prairie Parks, Arts & Recreation Department in the summer of 2016 as Recreation Coordinator at The Summit Active Adult Center. She is a proud graduate of Texas A&M University and holds a degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences. While at Texas A&M, Ellen worked as a historical interpreter for Texas Parks and Wildlife and always envisioned a career in the National Park Service. However, she discovered a personal passion for fitness and wellness and found her way into community recreation. Prior to joining The Summit, Ellen has over 15 years of customer service and guest relations experience. She cares deeply about community wellness, traveling, recreation, strength training, yoga, and is a self-proclaimed foodie. Ellen is thrilled to be a part of The Epic team and can’t wait for opening day coming early spring of 2018!
