Amelia Phillips Hale
Creative Manager + Executive Assistant
Amelia Phillips Hale has driven across the country, camped out in gale force winds and been licked by hundreds of dogs. A kid at heart, she revels in the ebbs and flows of family time and does her best to have as many impromptu dance parties and creative adventures as possible.
Director of Development, Strategy & Communications
When not working, Andrew and his wife, Laura, are usually at some event for their two sons, Charlie and Benjamin. As a family, they love being outdoors or taking on a new adventure.
Ann and her husband Robert, both retired educators, love camping, contra dancing and supporting local arts and music in Charleston. Coaching ECM teacher teams fits right in!
Ashley enjoys exploring the outdoors, doodling, and breaking bread with friends and family – especially her two children, her partner and his son. Collectively, their family of five has a special knack for finding cool insects and rocks, leaves, and shells shaped like hearts.
Director of Out-of-School Education
Judy enjoys working in her garden, especially her rose garden, and reading! She is passionate about sharing her love of books and reading with the next generation and being a part of ECM!
Kari has always had a passion for working with children so it’s no surprise she found her way to ECM. When she is not at a sporting event cheering on family and friends, you can find her knitting up a storm!
Kendall has nearly thirty years of experience in the arts and education, can balance a busy family life, stand on her head, and wrangle chickens, but can not reach things on the top shelf without standing on something.
Linda is an avid reader, loves outdoor activities with her dog, spends time with friends, and is often found around Charleston and Columbia spoiling her grandchildren.
From her early years of playing school with her teddy bears and dolls to teaching shapes and patterns to her children by painting with their feet in the yard, she was destined to be part of Engaging Creative Minds…
Robin has one daughter, a granddaughter, and lives in Hanahan with her husband a cat and dog. She loves to garden, kayak, create art and love on her new granddaughter.
Director of In-School Education
When Susan isn’t adding to her collections of books, puppets, cooking gadgets and exciting ideas, she can be found working with ECM’s Coaches to make our programing and professional development top notch!
