Ella’s varied career path has taken her from working at the Playboy Mansion to earning an MBA from The International University of Monaco. Author of Nice in Nice: The day-to-day musings of a middle-aged housewife living “part-time” in the South of France, she discovered her DNA traces back to the French region where she feels totally at home.
She has led media outreach efforts for several non-profit organizations and is a sustaining member of The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc., where she served as editor of their publication Peachtree Papers. Passionate about assisting other female founders to excel in their entrepreneurial efforts, Ella has served as a mentor with StartupChicks.org, sits on the Advisory Board of eKlozet, a female-founded/led enterprise in the luxury consignment market, and is a member of the Professional Women’s Network, Inc. in Nice and Monaco. In 2013, she and two fellow authors on the Riviera began an annual Meet the Authors event, held in Nice every June to promote local authors and their works.
Ella began working with the Adrian Leeds Group a few years ago to search and find both rental and purchase properties for our clients seeking a sunny life on the Côte d’Azur. She is so in love with Nice, that her enthusiasm is quite contagious and our clients circle her like a moth to a flame, developing a strong community along the way.
