Ella was born in Columbus, Ohio, seventeen minutes after her twin sister, Riley. Ella’s friends and Riley’s friends often think one is the other, so if you say hi and don’t get a response, it’s probably because that twin doesn’t know who you are. Ella’s love for the outdoors always existed, but she got more into hiking/backpacking after taking part in a month-long NOLS mountaineering course. Since then, she has hiked 35 miles and then 65 miles of the Appalachian Trail, worked at an adventure summer camp in Ohio teaching tiny children how to rock climb, kayak, and even shoot archery, and has had the fabulous opportunity to explore California with SCoutfitters. Coming from Ohio to downtown Los Angeles, she really misses snow and green trees. So, she’s especially pumped about getting to know the alpine lakes, glaciers, and forests California.
