“Ellen was a pleasure to work with during her time as an intern at Agency Entourage. She was very organized, creative, bright and showed a strong desire to learn new things. I enjoyed getting to know Ellen and appreciated her thoughtfulness and strong work ethic.”
Nealy Mincher, August 8, 2012

“Ellen was an outstanding team member in my public relations campaigns course. As the head of the advertising team of our PR firm, she developed key parts of an integrated marketing campaign plan through EdVenture Partners. She led the development of posters and advertisements for us–an effort that contributed to the campaign winning third place in a national competition and receiving the top prize. She will be a valued team member in any organization.”
