Ellie combines her professional, personal and socio-political worlds, centring lived experience and a commitment to transformative systems change. This is underpinned by a focus on innovation, social justice and leading together.

In 2017 Ellie founded and is the Executive Director of LELAN (the Lived Experience Leadership & Advocacy Network). LELAN is the peak organisation in South Australia for people with lived experience of mental distress, social issues or injustice. LELAN draws on the collective experiences, insights and leadership of people with lived experience to drive desperately needed change in the mental health and social sectors.

Ellie is an individually appointed member of the legislated South Australian Suicide Prevention Council and loves cheese, particularly the stinky oozy kind.
