After 35 years with the Door County Human Services Department, Cindy Zellner-Ehlers has recently retired as the Developmental Disabled Program Manager. Zellner-Ehlers decided at the end of 2017 to retire and spend more time with her family and her one-year-old grandchild. She started in a managerial role in the department and then working for people with mental health difficulties and finally those affected with developmental disabilities. The biggest challenge being addressed now is children’s mental health needs, according to Zellner-Ehlers.
Zellner-Ehlers’ last day on the job was February 23 and she was formally recognized for her years of service at the Door County Board meeting last week. She lives with her husband Door County Circuit Court Judge D. Todd Ehlers on Kangaroo Lake and has two adult children.
