Meet Ellen

I'm Ellen, and I've embarked on an incredible journey fueled by motherhood, running a family business, and my deep passion for teaching and coaching. It all started when I took on the challenge of running, completing marathons, and immersing myself in the vibrant running community. The mental and physical challenges brought me immense joy and allowed me to find balance amidst my family responsibilities. Alongside running, I discovered the thrill of open water swimming, competing in events that combined my love for the water with my passion for sports. This harmonious blend of activities, coupled with the connections I made, truly rejuvenated me as a busy mum.

Through my own transformative journey and the support of others, including running marathons, I rediscovered my true self. This inspired me to merge my passions for sports, exercise, education, empowerment, coaching, and collaboration. It ignited a deep desire to help women who might be feeling lost, stuck, or searching for that something special in their lives. Thus, EP Coaching was born—an opportunity for me to provide accountability, support, education, and guidance while helping women embrace running, connect with others, and uncover their own unique paths of growth and self-discovery
