Director of Operations
Ellen wears many hats at Free Market Financial. In addition to making sure that our events are designed, scheduled and attended, she also makes sure that new clients flow through our process smoothly. Ellen mothers our clients, often becoming the receiver of wonderful news, like a child graduating college or getting married or making them a grandparent! Ellen also ensures that all the logistical aspects of our client service process hum.
She is married to Peter and they have two grown daughters. Ellen and Peter live in the Palisades area of Charlotte.
