I’M Ellyn!

Oh hey

take back your time

Get Your Time +
Life Organized

Achieve Your
Goals, Finally


I am a work-life balance + goal attainment coach for multi-passionate, high-achieving female professionals in STEM fields who overcommit, struggle to set boundaries and balance their career with their personal life. I help them create sustainable systems for achieving their personal and professional goals in a way that integrates into their life.

Because too many badass humans use “not enough time” as an excuse for not getting where they want to be in life!! Bottom line, we have the same hours in the day as all the people we admire. The problem is that we’re not using that time effectively to give us all the things we want in our lives. We just have to trim the fat, take back our time and get over the excuses that are keeping us from getting there.

a Clear Sense of Purpose in my life

Ellyn is a student and teacher of human potential. I started her program with a motley rumpus of ideas, hopes, frustrations, and aspirations. By the end, I had a plan, a timeline, and a clear sense of purpose that excited me. She listened, asked good/hard questions, and collaborated with me to shape ephemeral ideas and wishes into tangible objects I can work and play with. I look forward to learning more from her in the future.

still reaping the benefits months later

It’s amazing how things come to you exactly when you need them, and you were exactly what I needed. You helped me take these huge, lofty, seemingly unattainable goals and break them into mini tasks. You also helped me learn how my productivity/creativity works and how I need to harness it when it strikes to make the most out of my time. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, or what I was truly hoping to gain, and it blew me away how valuable these 8 weeks were! I’m still reaping the benefits after we’re done, so worth the investment in yourself. Love you long time xx

i highly recommend working with her no matter what challenges you’re facing

I’m so grateful for meeting Ellyn this year and doing coaching sessions with her. Not only is she very comfortable to talk to, but she also asks the hard-hitting questions to make you think. She helped me uncover a lot of things I’ve been passionate about over the years but have put aside for one reason or another. She also had amazing feedback on how to tackle some of the challenges I have been facing with determining the next steps in my career and what direction to head. I highly recommend working with her no matter what challenges you’re facing both professionally and personally!

tangible tools + resources for everyday life

Besides being one of the most authentic humans I’ve ever met, Ellyn is terrific at her job as a coach. She’s helped me make my goals more tangible and provided me with the tools and resources to making them achievable in my day-to-day life. I always look forward to our 1-on-1 coaching sessions.
