Get to know our director of programming!
Although Ellie is originally from Cleveland, OH, she knew she wanted to go to a school with lots of school spirit, football, great academics and that was situated in a college town! When she decided to look at UGA last minute, she fell in love and knew she had to be a dawg!
Ellie remembers the choosing to go Chi O fondly. During recruitment, she said it always felt "warm and welcoming."
"I came to UGA not knowing anyone and Chi O gave me a feeling of home and belonging," she said.
Fast forward two years and now she is serving on Exec! Ellie is the liaison between Cardinal Cabinet and the Executive Board. When she isn't eating avocado toast or binge-watching Friends, Ellie can be found catching up with members of Cardinal Cabinet!
In bi-weekly meetings with the Cardinal Cabinet heads and other chairmen, Ellie leads them in event-planning and helps them brainstorm great ideas for how to best serve the chapter! From helping Bachelor viewing parties come to life to advising the Philanthropy Chairs, Ellie keeps busy. She also oversees the point system to make sure all of our members are staying actively involved in our chapter and on campus.
Ellie is such a good fit for this role because she has her own experience serving on Cardinal Cabinet. Last year, she was the Director of Community Service.
"I loved working with so many new people and planning events for our chapter and I wanted to continue to be more involved in the chapter this year!" she said.
