About Me

Originally from Fairbanks, Alaska, Elli graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She has lived in almost every state in the Pacific Northwest and spent many summers as a horseback riding guide in Colorado & Montana.
