Ellie has two important roles – project team support and Nathan’s wife. She previously worked as a teaching assistant at Highfield Junior School, and came to work for Make Me Local when it grew faster than expected and needed an extra pair of hands. If you call Make Me Local, it will often be Ellie’s cheery voice you hear answering the phone.

Ellie loves being at home and enjoys her garden, as well as going out and about with Nathan, their two children and their dog Red. She would drop everything to eat at any of the Ivy Group restaurants. She also enjoys a curry (chicken shashlik with chana masala and a peshwari naan, if you were wondering) and you might bump into her if you’re at Shampan Bromley. The team envy Ellie’s ability to find a good bargain at a boot sale, as she usually comes home with an entire new outfit. She would love Uma Thurman to play her in a movie of her life – she thinks Uma looks great in a yellow tracksuit with a samurai sword (Ellie might be getting some ideas for her next boot sale purchases).
