Ellie has spent the last six years as an analytical chemist examining how climate change is impacting and influencing the chemistry of our waterways. She brings with her experience in water quality monitoring, sampling technologies, and research methods. Most recently, she has spent the last two years leading water quality policy and regulatory projects throughout the state of Idaho including reviewing and commenting on NPDES discharge, stormwater, and water reuse permits. Ellie is excited to apply her technical background and water quality knowledge to help utilities improve their water infrastructure and grow Isle’s TAG program. Outside of the office, you can usually find Ellie enjoying the outdoors while either rock climbing, kayaking, or backpacking.
Ellie holds a Ph.D. in chemical oceanography from the University of South Florida and a B.A. in chemistry from the College of Wooster. She has also completed a graduate certificate in science communication and education from the University of Idaho.
