Ellen’s work at Thryve spans a wide range of activities, from being the general sounding board and finding great facilitation venues, all the way to checking those tricky excel cells that keep changing in that financial data sheet.
Ellen’s work interests lie in the joys of financial data and administration and a certain amount of financial software geekiness; she loves detail and polishing the edges.
If not chasing numbers, Ellen also loves yoga, reading, horse riding (when there is an opportunity) and swimming.
