With her strong background in hospitality, project management, business development, and digital marketing, Elli is a perfect fit for the Click Mentality team. She describes her outlook on marketing as “business and technical planning plus creative execution.” A fan of data-driven results, she knows which levers to pull in order to move the needle for clients. Elli’s education has been earned on the job and in the classroom: she holds a BS in Economics from Gonzaga University and an MBA from the University of Colorado at Denver. She holds Google certifications and is working on others.
Elli was born in Montana and raised on San Juan Island north of Washington state. Being raised on an island by parents that she affectionately describes as hippies provides not just a fascinating origin story but also a unique perspective on the world at large. Later, she moved to Colorado where she has lived for the past 15 years or so. She met her husband Mike playing softball, even though they are both terrible at it (by their own admission). Elli and Mike are the proud parents of a sassy young daughter who gives them a run for their money daily.
Elli describes herself as lighthearted, dedicated, and loyal. She holds a deep belief in the importance of kindness and strives to live that principle. When she’s not working her magic for Click Mentalilty’s clients, Elli can often be found gardening, hiking, and cooking - though not all at once. Like many Coloradans, she’s also a fan of the outdoors and enjoys hiking and snowboarding.
Random fact: Elli admits to having a pet peeve that has vexed many a neatnik: people who don’t squeeze the toothpaste tube from the bottom.
