"I first hired Ellen to be part of our inaugural blogger team on DIY Network's Made + Remade because I was impressed with her entertaining and crafting abilities and her insight into design trends. But I soon learned that Ellen's skills extend far beyond those subjects. Ellen's writing shows a true passion for storytelling, a unique voice that exudes clarity and honesty, and a humble wit that draws an audience to her words. Not only have Ellen's own stories helped us garner a loyal audience that helps us meet our page view and visitor goals, but her flexibility in writing has also proved beneficial for landing sponsors who want us to help them tell their stories through custom content. Additionally, Ellen is a whiz at social media and quite a natural in front of the camera, whether still photos or video. Her contribution has been essential to the development of the Made + Remade brand, and she would be a welcome addition to any team that's lucky enough to secure her talents."

"In an effort to deliver value through event platforms, Ellen was pivotal in the creation of custom content that was seamlessly utilized by our networks and our partners. Original content generation included both video and written pieces; her aptitude for on-camera hosting and natural inquisition of interview subjects produced dynamic and thorough digital content. In addition to on-camera duties, Ellen was able to capture, author and publish content that helped support our objectives on social media and on our websites. Ellen’s persistent enthusiasm and ambition toward each task is a bonus to the stellar work that she produces. I can confidently recommend Ellen!"
