Meet Ellen

Hi! My name is Ellen. I am a Registered Dietitian and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. I own a small online business working with women to reach their health and wellness goals. Because my work is completely online, my schedule is extremely flexible! I also teach group fitness classes at Fitness Revolution Buffalo Grove and FFC Park Ridge on Monday and Wednesday early mornings. I began babysitting at the young age of 11 when I took a babysitter certification course through The Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, IL. Now, 17 years later, I have taken care of all ages and up to 5 children at a time. I am kind, patient, energetic, and absolutely love babies and children. I know having a stranger look after your little one(s) can be scary so I am happy to meet with you first or discuss/answer any questions you have over the Read more phone.
