Manage episode 347627408 series 3297726
Ellen has a diverse background: she studied acting at Ohio University and moved to New York to pursue it, but quickly found that wasn’t the career for her.
In her fifteen years in Brooklyn she managed a bookstore, was a kitchen manager for a cafe, studied pre-med at Hunter College, and then fell into the fashion world where she worked for many years.
She’s now funneling her energy into Alakazam, which she took over in March of 2019, and feels she has found her calling!
Listen in as Ellen shares what it has been like to use her platform to raise awareness about the causes that matter to her community, how she has deepened connections and relationships with customers throughout the pandemic, and how growing a team has given more time to plan for the future.
