With a background in grant writing, Ellen now works to equip our grant writers as well as build out a team and administrative systems to support our regional representatives. She enjoys working on a variety of projects that ultimately connect our major donors more deeply to the work and mission of Plant With Purpose.

Previously, Ellen worked as a Grant Writer at Voices for Children, with AmeriCorps at Habitat for Humanity East Bay, and administered impact evaluation surveys in Guatemala to benefit Heifer International. She has a Bachelor's Degree in International Relations from UC Davis and a Master's Degree in International Development and Nonprofit Management from UC San Diego. Ellen is excited to play a part in an organization that cares deeply for people and the environment. When Ellen is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband Matt and two young children - Samuel and Lily.
