Ella is part of our Program Support team and has been with us for 4 and a half years! Ella is a bubbly character who loves her cat, Fudge very much. She is a great addition to our team and spreads lots of joy. Ella works very closely with Glenda, who you met a few weeks ago and Lindsey and June (who you will meet soon).
Ella loves supporting our volunteers to make a positive difference in the lives of children in care. She loves sharing in their successes and is constantly blown away by the generosity of Pyjama Angels.
We asked Ella a few questions to help you to get to know her better!
What is your favourite quote or children’s book?
“You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” Alice – Alice in Wonderland
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a marine biologist, but remembered I am afraid of the deep ocean so that wasn’t going to work out so well
What is your definition of success?
Achieving goals that you set for yourself.
How would your friends describe you?
A goof ball and a good listener.
What is on your bucket list?
I think the better question is what ISN’T on my bucket list. I want to travel to all countries in the world and experience all the cultures the world has to offer.
Here is just some of the ways that our team would describe Ella!
Do you have any pets?
I have a sphynx cat called Fudge.
What is your favourite food?
Pizza and hot chippies
If you could meet any historical figure or celebrity, who would you choose and why?
Florence Nightingale – I would love to know her thought processes behind her revolutionary nursing ideas.
What is one thing you have taken away from COVID?
When you are part of a supportive community you can conquer anything that life throws your way
Thanks for helping us get to know you, Ella! You are an absolute gem!
