Ellen moved to Vermont in 2013 when she started working in the healthcare industry. She started as a private caregiver and eventually made her way to working with the senior population, first as a Program Assistant and then as the Program Director. She is excited to continue her work with the local community in Shelburne. Ellen currently lives in Winooski with her partner. Being a native Minnesotan, Ellen appreciates all that Vermont has to offer, especially lake and river swimming, hiking, snow shoeing, and all the delicious vegetarian foods! Ellen also has her French Translation certificate and is known as a dog whisperer.
