Ellysa was once asked to name her favorite author, and she replied, "Why should I choose just one? What a restrictive construct!"

That quote exemplifies Ellysa. She jousts with convention.

Though one might assume otherwise, this skilled scribe did not come to her envelope-pushing perspective from privilege. While some rise to their professional positions through connections and family legacies, Ellysa's access came via dedication, hard work and resilient courage.

Unlike her Ivy League classmates, Ellysa's collegiate career began at a community college in Tennessee. Johnson City is an atypical starting point for an eventual Ivy alumna. Yet, that's precisely where young Ellysa first richly engaged with diverse authors' works.

She soon visualized her future self as a successful writer. Within two autumns, Ellysa was in Hanover, New Hampshire, as a Dartmouth College student.

Today, a proud Dartmouth alum, Ellysa is on a mission to transform readers' experiences by leaving her exceptional imprint on life-enriching websites. She still won't name a favorite author.
