Ellie Glenn is the legislative liaison for the Department of Health and Senior Services, where she helps shape and advocate for policies that improve the health and lives of Missourians. Among her proudest accomplishments in this role are leading the effort to pass a law that requires screening for congenital heart defects for all newborns in the state, and legislation that protects high school athletes from concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Before accepting this important position, she held critical posts working on Missouri politics and policy. Ellie, a native of Louisiana, Missouri, is a 2007 Shear Fellow and graduated from Truman State University the same year with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. In receiving the honor of the Amethyst Award, Ellie said, "I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given to work for Missouri, and I plan to continue to serve as best I can."
