Ellie joined the Victory team in 2018. Her last teaching experience was with the Maryland public school system. Originally from Pittsburgh, Ellie moved to Maryland to earn her Bachelors in Special Education from Goucher College. She has taught students with severe emotional needs in a self-contained setting and students with mild to moderate disabilities in the general education class. She has also worked with children with Autism in the home by providing informal social therapy for the child and his family. Her desire to work with, and focus on, children and teens with Autism led Ellie to pursue a Master's degree from Penn State's online program.
In her free time, Ellie likes to cook, hike, and spend time with her cat and husband.
