Ellie graduated from Colgate University in 2021 with a B.A. in Political Science. During her time at Colgate, Ellie founded and led the Colgate Vote Project, a student-run organization focused on improving rates of student voting and civic engagement in state and national elections. While studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland, Ellie worked as an intern at the World Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). At the YWCA, Ellie worked to analyze the accessibility of contraceptives and other reproductive health resources for young people in Eastern Europe. After an unexpected early end to her study abroad program in March of 2020, Ellie returned home and volunteered as a COVID-19 contact-tracer and data manager for the St. Lawrence Public Health Department. In the future, Ellie hopes to pursue an M.D. and advocate for improved access to effective and compassionate healthcare in rural areas. Prior to joining the CTU, Ellie worked as a Patient Care Technician in a general medicine floor at BIDMC. She is excited to be a part of the CVVR and further her knowledge of vaccines, virology, and clinical research. In her free time, Ellie enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with her orange tabby cat, Linguini.
