Director of Outreach
Ellie is the Director of Outreach at Fusion Academy Huntington Beach. Prior to moving into this role, Ellie was the Director of Admissions and Outreach at Fusion Academy Oak Brook. Previous to that Ellie was the Director of First Impressions at the Oak Brook campus, and before that, was the very first science and math teacher/mentor at that campus when they opened.
She received a Bachelor’s of Science degree with a concentration in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. She completed an undergraduate research project in Arizona concentrating on a species of flower and polyploidy within the species. After working with students in other capacities, Ellie is very excited to continue her career with Fusion.
Ellie has been involved in dance her whole life, and continues to pursue this passion as a hobby whenever possible. She is obsessed with dogs, especially the Bernese Mountain Dog breed. Growing up, her family had a Bernese Mountain Dog that grew to 160 lbs – a true gentle giant! Additionally, Ellie studied in Ecuador for a summer program where she once ate a “lemon” ant in the tropical rain forest!
