I created Ellie D Perfume, a niche perfume company, in 2006, and have since expanded the line to include four products. The line is now carried in high end boutiques in the United States and abroad. I received a BA in psychology with a concentration in neuroscience from Haverford College, and a MLA in art history from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to launching my perfume business, I spent eight years in New York working in finance, and then at Christie’s and an art gallery specializing in American Art before relocating to London in 2006. I moved to Chicago in 2008 with my husband, Brian, and two children, Laine and William. My involvement with Lakeview Pantry started over six years ago when I volunteered for Saturday home delivery with my then 3-year-old daughter. Our Saturday mornings at the Pantry quickly became a special family tradition. We have grown to love the staff, the mission and the incredible work that the Pantry does to improve the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors.
