Working for a design agency in New York, Ellie grew into a role as Client Relationship Manager from Account Manager and absolutely loved creating meaningful partnerships and new business opportunities for her firm. Her agency specialized at catering to the needs of beauty brands and this niche offering has enabled her to work on projects for some iconic cosmetic companies such as L'Oréal and Estee Lauder. Some further career highlights include working on the incredible launch of Pat McGrath Labs and Rihanna's Fenty Beauty where the team was involved in the retail design and execution for multiple department store locations across the world including Bergdorf Goodman, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Boots and Sephora.

Ellie has volunteered with multiple charity organisations over the last decade, most recently for several charities supporting mental health and suicide prevention. During her time in New York, Ellie regularly supported Reveal Beauty org, a charity that works to empower survivors of domestic abuse and sex trafficking through pampering events, support workshops and regular product donations.
