Ellery grew up in Michigan, and after college, lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 13 years, followed by a two year stint in Boston. She calls Santa Cruz, California home.
Ellery’s first career was with an international adventure and community service travel company for teenagers called Adventures Cross-Country (ARCC) where she started out packing food and camping equipment and left after twelve years as the Program Director.

Most of Ellery’s time outside of work is spent with my wife and our one-year old twin
sons Charlie & Jayden. She loves being outdoors– by the beach, hiking, biking, backpacking, camping; exploring new towns; cooking, discovering new restaurants and farmers markets; traveling and spending time with family and friends.
