She is excited to use her experience in mass market fashion to explore how to best apply sustainable design practices to this industry. In her free time, Ellie enjoys taking classes in the circus arts; specifically lyra, silks, and partner acrobalance. She is currently pursuing an MA in Sustainable Design at MCAD and has recently moved to Los Angeles.
