Ellie has joined us as our Digital Marketing Intern and will be here for the next nine months. She grew up in Texas and graduated in May from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and a focus in English. During her time in Furman’s religion department, Ellie studied Hinduism and Biblical studies and enjoyed exploring the ways in which those subjects relate to modern culture, art, and literature. Her interest in other cultures and religions led her to study abroad in London, Cuba, and Scandinavia, which allowed her to meet and engage with people from various backgrounds. She loved her time in South Carolina, but is excited for new adventures in the Pacific Northwest. As a participant in the Fellows Program through the Oregon Leadership Development Institute for the next nine months, Ellie is looking forward to experiencing the community and fun events happening around the area.
