Ellie is from Greeley, Colorado and graduated with a business degree from University of Colorado – Colorado Springs. She is a Class A member of the PGA of America as of April 2017. She has lived in Arizona since June of 2016.
The game of golf came into Ellie’s life at an early age and has immensely impacted her on and off the course. On her way to earning her PGA card she worked at multiple locations while still studying at UCCS. Her journey quickly guided her to Scottsdale where she worked for Troon in the sales & marketing department. Upon finishing up school she was eager to stay in the warmer weather and year-round golf so she took an assistant golf professional position at FireRock Country Club in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Ellie was named Tournament Coordinator at Whirlwind Golf Club in October 2017, and was promoted to Head Professional in 2019.
Ellie enjoys playing golf just as much as she enjoys working in the industry. Outside of golf, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and spending time with her family back in Colorado.
