Ellen was born and raised in Zephyrhills, Florida and moved to North Carolina after graduating from the University of South Florida in 2014. Growing up she was involved in gymnastics and dance, also dabbling in soccer, weightlifting, and tennis. Throughout college, Ellen was a devoted long-distance runner, but finally gave CrossFit a try in her senior year after many pleadings from a family friend to give it a shot. She immediately fell in love with the methodology and the community that it offers.
When not in the gym, Ellen can be found spending time with her friends and family, exploring restaurants in Raleigh, and finding any excuse she can to be outside. She likes Mexican food, music, snatches, and whiskey. She dislikes thrusters, skipped reps, and people who don’t use their turn signals.
