Hi I'm Ella

I have an MBA. I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a Humanities degree, worked briefly for a marketing company before returning to school for an MBA. I worked four years for a Fortune 500 company in Finance during which time I married one of my coworkers. I quit my job to become a full-time mother when my first child was born. While I sometimes miss working, I love being at home with my four children. Now I use my talents and skills to benefit my children's elementary school where I coordinate an Art program with a group of 14 volunteers.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church, but when I was a teenager, my parents stopped attending our church for about 6 years. During that time, I asked myself why I attended alone. I realized then and have realized many times since that I attend this church because its doctrine and practices make me happy and bring me peace. I am a better person because of my membership. I value my personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. My church brings me closer to Him. And as I follow Him, the relationships that I most value (husband, children, parents, siblings, friends and neighbors) only improve.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to support those in my community which includes my church congregation, my neighborhood, and my school. I play the piano for the children's organization at church and am helping child volunteers to share their talents in our children's meetings by playing the piano or other instruments while the group sings. I also watch over and visit three women from my church on a monthly basis through a wonderful church program which turns ordinary women like me into Christ's helping hands. I swap childcare and carpool duties with my neighbors and appreciate all the support they give to me and hope I provide equal benefit to them. And, as mentioned above, I run the Art program at my elementary school, using 14 parent volunteers.
