Ms. Elly is a Junior at Elkhorn South High School. She is a ‘daughter’ of the congregation, having grown up at Lord of Life.

She enjoys working with children because of their imagination. They always manage to come up with fun, crazy scenarios. Her faith enters into her daily interactions with children through singing and telling Bible stories. Elly’s favorite children’s book is The Giving Tree.

When she’s not at work or school, she enjoys reading, musical theatre, and spending time with her family and dogs. Her favorite food is shrimp tortellini, and her favorite candy is Crunch bars.
