WWC Oregon Outreach Associate
Born in Idaho and a lifelong resident of Oregon, Ellie lives in Powell Butte with her husband Mark and two young sons, Roan and Rawley. Ellie earned a bachelor’s in Biology from OSU-Cascades in 2014, and in May 2023 she will complete her master’s at the University of Idaho in Integrated Natural Resources, focusing on rangeland and wildlife management. She loves spending time outdoors with her family and animals, fly fishing, and learning about hunting and cooking wild game with her sons.
Ellie was introduced to Western Landowners Alliance several years ago through her participation in Women in Ranching. She was so inspired by their work that she became determined to be a part of the team one day. She has a genuine love for the land, wildlife, livestock, and land stewards. That love is the driving force that motivates her to support working people and working lands to continue to provide food, fiber, critical habitat and ecosystem services in the future.
