MIDWEST AMBASSADOR: SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA
Ellen had the good fortune to have been born in Minnesota, where she spent summers camping, boating, fishing, and swimming in many of the famed lakes. After graduating from college, she took off for Hamburg, Germany, where she lived and worked and adventured for 9 years before returning to Minnesota and her beloved Boundary Waters.
In her time abroad and at home, she has learned that exploration of the great outdoors was made magical for her through relationships in her life. By navigating unknown territory in the wilderness and foreign cities with others, the experiences become so much richer and more memorable. She is excited to be part of the 2017 SheJumps team and to facilitate events and activities that may form meaningful relationships between people and forging positive interaction for women in the outdoors!
