Ellen has been working at Lake Street since 1972. After graduating from UW-Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Business Administration, she received a call a few months following graduation that Lake Street was looking for someone special to manage the office. A friday interview turned into the first day of work on Monday and Ellen has been our Administrative Secretary ever since. A lover of the beauty of the Chippewa Valley, she enjoys outdoor activities such as gardening, yard work, and taking short walks. She is avidly involved in bowling activities on the local, state, and national levels. Ellen and her sister, Marcia, own a small home on the East Hill along with their two kitties, Peaches and Misty.
