Ellen joined The Banyans Health and Wellness’ team in February 2021 with a background in crisis social work, mostly in homeless shelters and emergency accommodation. When she’s not at The Banyans, Ellen is often found working at a local neighbourhood centre as an intake and response worker.

The Banyans’ person-centred approach to care and multidisciplinary treatment was attractive to Ellen, who enjoys learning from other practitioners and watching how they work.

She is encouraged by the supportive working environment that The Banyans prides itself on and loves being part of team that helps guests to achieve optimal outcomes.

In her spare time, Ellen enjoys going to the beach, drinking coffee, gardening, reading, and just being outside.
