Ellen has been designing and photographing professionally for about 7 years now. She’s been fortunate enough to have worked in such a variety of industries such as retail, housewares, collegiate, lighting and holistic healthcare. 

She’s always loved working in a creative environment! This sounds cliche, yes, but it's the truth - she was even going to major in biotechnology in college, but just couldn't shake the fact that being creative was at her core. So, that's exactly what she did! In 2012, she graduated from Carthage College with a BFA in Graphic Design and minored in Photography and Communication.
