The Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails, the state’s largest nonprofit serving girls, elected Los Alamos National Lab Deputy Laboratory Director Elizabeth (Beth) Sellers to serve on the Board of Directors.
At its annual meeting, the members of the Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails also elected Karen Bergren from Taos and Stacey Niver, a junior at Eldorado High School in Albuquerque each to two-year terms.
“The Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails and our members are fortunate to have so many selfless leaders who are willing to share their talents to strengthen our organization through their service on the Board of Directors,” said Peggy Sanchez Mills, CEO of the Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails.
Sellers has been a resident of Los Alamos since 2011. Prior to coming to Los Alamos, she was responsible for strategic development and business development in Bethesda, Md.; and also worked in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Sellers has served on the board of directors for the Idaho Regional Medical Center and participated in several non-profit organizations including Women in Science and Engineering.
Sellers joined the board because, “There are numerous needs in New Mexico and I believe Girl Scouts will enable girls to envision a new and different future by exposing them to new and different experiences.”
