Elle was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA and currently calls Ligonier, PA home. She began her design career working as an intern for a NGO in Accra, Ghana while in college and parlayed that into a full-blown career after graduating from Grove City College. While working in Washington, D.C., she was thrown into the world of traditional fundraising, and helped to build the digital fundraising tools and strategies for several non-profit organizations in the DC Metro area. Pretty soon she was building websites from the ground up, learning everything there is to know in Adobe Creative Suite, and taking as many courses in Inbound Marketing, YouTube Marketing, Social Media, and Google Advertising as she could. Elle kicked off her freelance career in 2011 with the aim to help small businesses reach their online marketing potential. Elle maintains a full-time career as a Marketing Manager for a business, and works after 5pm and before 8am on freelance projects.
