Founder / Director
Ellie is a creative. A businesswoman. A mother. A survivor.
After studying Film Production at Colombia Academy in Vancouver, Ellie gained experience working on film sets in Canada and Australia for both commercial and entertainment industry clients. After moving back to Australia, Ellie pursued her love of fashion with a successful career as a stylist for both film and print media; and subsequently as a designer – with her clothing line stocked in boutiques across Australia and Asia for over a decade. Moving into travel goods, Ellie then launched a popular line of travel bags and accessories before motherhood provided the perfect step-change in direction.
Ellie now channels her creativity into her role as a Director of the family office – managing a diverse portfolio of investments worldwide, with a strategic focus on ESG principles and socially responsible outcomes.
In 2017, Ellie received a devastating breast cancer diagnosis, resulting in a gruelling regime of treatment and multiple invasive surgeries. Today Ellie is cancer free and inspired to help others just like her. She set up the Two Sisters Foundation with her sister Lisa; determined to change the narrative for women the world over, raising awareness and vital funds for breast and ovarian cancer research.
Devoted mum to Jasper and Clover, Ellie has a passion for healthy living and – when covid restrictions permit – also works alongside her husband Mick to run an Elite Ski Academy which helps to identify, develop and train alpine athletes of the future.
