Margo Ellis is the Buell Foundation’s Communications Manager where she’ll be responsible for expanding and streamlining internal and external communications at the foundation.

Previous employers include AAA Colorado/EnCompass magazine, George Washington University, Northern Virginia Family Service, and Gardner Business Media. She’s excited to return to the rewarding work of overseeing communications for a nonprofit.

Margo holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Journalism from the University of New Mexico. She is a native Coloradan who loves the outdoors—whether playing tennis, walking the dog, gardening, concert-going, hiking, or camping. Other pursuits include domestic life of keeping up with two teenaged kids, spending time with friends and family, and reading when precious time allows.
