Professionally, Ellyse is a brand manager and creative director who specializes in marketing, project Managment and innovative technologies.
By night and weekend she is making art with her wife Courtney while listening to music, their favorite podcasts and books.
Ellyse and Courtney love living as sustainably as possible and work hard to enjoy as much time as they can outside and traveling with their golden retriever, Luca.
To Ellyse, this life is all about enjoying the simple things.
