Ellie joined LCA in October 2018 having worked as a freelancer to the agency for the previous six months. She has over six years’ experience in political engagement, community consultation, campaigning and crisis management.
Ellie began her communications career at Grayling Public Affairs in 2012 where she worked on integrated PR and public affairs campaigns for BT Scotland and the 2014 Ryder Cup. She then moved to Curtin&Co where she spent two years designing and delivering a range of political engagement and community consultation programmes focused on the development sector.
She has also worked for corporate reputation and crisis communications specialists Register Larkin, where she built up her live crisis experience and devised crisis management programmes for large corporate and infrastructure accounts such as Crossrail.
Ellie was born and bred in Camden and has been involved her local Labour party since she was a teenager. She was a campaign team member for Tulip Siddiq’s (MP for Hampstead and North Kilburn) successful 2015, 2017 and 2019 General Elections. This has stood her in good stead for a number of Camden projects in LCA including an ongoing project to regenerate the two One Housing estates Gilbeys Yard and Juniper Crescent in Camden Town, the redevelopment of land attached to Landsec’s O2 Shopping Centre on Finchley Road and a two site development in Kings Cross for Access self-storage.
In her time at LCA she has been part of the NHS team, delivering service change, community and stakeholder consultation along with PR for the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust in Denmark Hill. She has also worked extensively in Tower Hamlets including Hadley’s Blackwall Yard, Regal London’s Orchard Wharf, Urbanest’s student proposal at 2 Trafalgar Way and advising One Housing on their Isle of Dogs estate programme.
She graduated in 2012 from the University of Glasgow with a degree in History and Politics. She has a strong interest in political campaigns and worked on the Hilary Clinton presidential campaign in 2016.
Outside of the office, Ellie is a dedicated yogi. She is a qualified yoga teacher and likes to end her days in the office with the handstand. Unfortunately, she has so far resisted attempts to persuade her to lead an all-LCA yoga lesson.
