Ellie loves working with a company focused on giving -- such a refreshing change! A Florida native and Florida State graduate, she's been in Atlanta for a decade and enjoys her dogs, wine, and yoga pants. Her husband Josh is great, too. Ellie is not actually a dog, but she spends most of her free time helping run Atlanta-based BullsEye Rescue, so she's shamelessly using this bio to promote the Pitties.

Ileana Brogdon Director of Education
I grew up in Lawrenceville, Georgia, but my family tree spans from Spain all the way to Venezuela. I am a first generation-born American. Cultures, and the people they consist of, are kind of my “thing”. Not self-proclaiming that I am the ‘Anthony Bourdain’ of civilizations, but I love learning about new traditions and upbringings. Beyond my love for people and their way of life, I’ve always felt as though I related best to children. The dream of becoming a teacher became a reality and in the midst of my collegiate career, I married my nascar-loving/NHRA enthusiast fiancee, Phillips Byrd Brogdon III, and became a stepmom to my soccer-star son, Dylan and my first fur baby, Axle the Great, who is a Yorkie! My title of ‘Teacher’ however, has recently taken on a new meaning as my husband and I brought our daughter, Lilly Byrd Brogdon, into this world. Taking time away from the classroom has granted me the opportunity to be a change agent in the See Beautiful movement. I believe the imprint you leave for your future is your responsibility.
