Who We Are
Born and raised in the Denver Metro area, Ellie recently graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in political science with a minor in French. She is currently studying to take the LSAT and plans to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer. Ellie is eager to learn about the nonprofit world and engage with diverse communities throughout the state through the grantmaking process of a foundation as dedicated to children, youth and families as Caring for Colorado.
When she’s not working or studying, Ellie road-trips in her beloved Jeep to various mountain towns in Colorado to hike, off-road, fish, and visit with her family and friends. Her dog friends – Odin, Remi and Teller – love to accompany her on her adventures. She spent time studying and living in Paris before her program was cut short by the COVID pandemic, and Ellie plans on rectifying that with a lengthy visit to Paris as soon as possible.
