Originally from NYC, Ellie has had the opportunity to live in Canada, Europe and the USVI and now amazing Colorado.
Since a child she has surrounded herself with all animals big and small. When she was professional dancer, she would take her Pomeranian Chip Fox Fordsworth to ballet rehearsal in Carnegie Hall everyday.
Ellie owned and operated a business in the US Virgin Islands for over 10 years where she also rescued, fostered and placed many homeless dogs on the island of St.Croix in their forever homes. One of the biggest rescue programs she was involved in was Operation Hurricane Maria. A moment in time that effected many lives including Ellie and her family. She found herself on a Mercy ship with her own island rescues (Irie, Beans, Diesel, Finley & Frodo). It was a 5 day journey at sea that she will never forget. A ship filled with so many misplaced families and their pets. She knows that her love for animals and the great outdoors has a purpose and has let her pursue her passion in the professional pet service industry. Ellie is so grateful that Eric has given her the opportunity to bring her love for dogs and the great outdoors together!
