Local Girl Scouts get new leader

Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is welcoming Ellen DeSanctis as the Council’s new president and board chair.

DeSanctis is the executive vice president of strategy and development of Rosetta Resources Inc, an independent oil and gas company engaged in acquisition, exploration, development and production of natural gas properties in North America. She received a B.A. in Geology & Geological Sciences from Princeton University and a MBA from the University of California, Los Angeles.
