Why work with Ellen?

Whoever you are—an athlete looking to improve performance, or just someone seeking what foods are best for you, trying to lose weight, or looking for more energy—I can work with you to meet your specific goals at any stage in your life or training.

My greatest gift is to inspire my clients to take control of their own health—physically, emotionally and spiritually—and then see how these changes transform how they feel about themselves. It is a joy for me to support them on their path to the life that they deserve.

Of particular interest to athletes, perhaps, is that I began running at the age of 37, when my children were young, and became a competitive masters runner for 10 years at distances ranging from 5K to marathon. I have also trained and competed in numerous triathlons. During this time, I began coaching cross-country running, beginning at the elementary level and moving up to high school—all spanning 15 years. I am currently an assistant cross-country running coach at Greely High School right here in Cumberland Center, Maine.

Nutrition, health, stretching and strengthening are all areas that I have spent many years studying. I currently practice Tai Chi, Yoga, and Meditation as ways to balance my own active lifestyle. In addition, I believe in many forms of alternative medicine as well as conventional medicine as ways of healing.
