In 2017 I started my own business, Hello Social Co., to pursue my dream of helping small businesses and bloggers grow online. Please, check out the website for my latest blog posts and to learn more about the company.

I’m a 2012 graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Journalism and Public Relations. I’m currently pursing a Master’s in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University.


“I was really taken by Ellen’s kindness and interest in (a) small news matter. She not only gave excellent coverage in the paper, but was truly excited about our community event.”

Ellen is not only a social media genius, but she is also a talented writer and creative thinker. … I could always count on her to fill in the blanks on our social media quests! I have great confidence in Ellen’s skills.
