Ellen has lived in Chicago, Washington DC and Atlanta but considers Spokane home. She graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2014 and proceeded to own and operate a local coffee shop. With a little encouragement from family and friends, Ellen became a licensed broker and teamed up with Jurene Phaneuf at RE/MAX. Ellen loves being on a team because of the collaborative approach and the ability to leverage the experience and expertise from more than one real estate brain. In her free time, Ellen works on her rental properties, enjoys entertaining friends with her husband Dallas and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her golden retriever Sunny.
