Since joining E/Power Marketing in 2011, Ellie has been an invaluable asset to the team! Her early days with us were spent on the digital advertising team, strategizing and managing programs for our clients! Through the years she’s also invested her time and talents in analytics, account management, and strategy. Ellie is our go-to when it comes to developing new processes and designing innovative ways to make us more effective and efficient!

In June 2021, Ellie made the move to co-owner of E/Power Marketing! Her attention to detail, analytical brain, and motivating management style are essential to both the day-to-day operations and our long-term success!

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Ellie and her husband relocated to Chicago, IL, and have called the Windy City home for years! A mom to two young daughters, Ellie and her family love traveling, taking in shows and concerts, trying new restaurants, visiting with friends, or heading home to Wisconsin for a visit!
