Originally from right here in Louisville, Ellen heard about Boyce College through church. She came to Boyce as a transfer student in 2014, upon God’s leading to be equipped theologically for work and ministry. She graduated in the Spring of ’17 with her Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies: Worship and Music Studies, and is incredibly grateful for the time she spent studying at Boyce. Now, she is thrilled for the opportunity to represent the school she loves through being an Admissions Counselor. When not at the office, Ellen loves spending time with her family, reading in Louisville’s coffee shops, and anything peanut butter related.
