Ellen Christensen

Department Manager


I have been working in the Department for more than 20 years and as Department Manager for most of that time. My role in the department is to make sure all aspects of the academic and administrative program run smoothly. I was an undergrad at Stanford but have a BS and MA from the University of Minnesota. I love working in Anthropology, in large part, because of the opportunity to work with the faculty and students. I enjoy travel, love to read, and would like to find more time to do my sketching. I am an avid theatre-goer and a passionate Stanford women’s basketball fan.
