We have decided to highlight our very own CoWorkers members so you could get to know them. In this member highlight, meet Senior Consultant, Social Media and PR at Tell Your Story, Ellen DePodesta.
Get to know Ellen DePodesta, Senior Consultant, Social Media and PR at Tell Your Story
Ellen DePodesta is an Evanston resident, living with her husband, Doug, and her two giant babies, (I’m referring to her goldendoodle and chocolate lab, of course), Bailey and Fletcher. Ellen is a Senior Consultant in social media and public relations at Tell Your Story Brand Communications, Inc. in downtown Chicago.
While working in the city has its pros and cons, Ellen admits it is nice to have the option to work somewhere closer to home and be surrounded by professional-focused people at the same time. She worked from home for years and worked from Panera for a period of time, but felt isolated and distracted and wanted to interact with colleagues. Ellen decided that CoWorkers was the best place for her to get the collaboration and inspiration that she was looking for.
Outside of work, Ellen is passionate about traveling, and she has done her fair share of it throughout the past year. Greece, London, Wyoming, Florida and Las Vegas are a few of the locations she has conquered in recent months! Ellen stays active by riding her bike and playing with her dogs, and she is currently learning how to play golf. She has taken the first step and bought a set of golf clubs at a rummage sale. Look out, Bubba Watson, she’s coming for ya!
We are happy to have Ellen as part of the CoWorkers team!
