Where are they Now – Ellen Russell (OH 2014)
Ellen Russell (OH 2014) completed a Bachelor of Communication (Professional Communications) at RMIT, focussing on advertising as she hoped to work in a big ad agency. After multiple internships, she landed a job in marketing for an Aussie burger brand, and quickly found her area of interest – social media.
Almost 2 years later, Ellen was contacted by the Marketing Manager at Smiling Mind and made the move to the rapidly growing not-for-profit tech start up at the end of 2019.
Ellen is passionate about her role as Social and Communities Manager at Smiling Mind, and manages all social channels including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more recently TikTok. “It has been incredibly rewarding working in the mental health space at a time where people need our services the most! I’m proud to have played a role in helping support 2.2 million Aussies in the last year alone and look forward to extending our impact as Smiling Mind continues to grow”.
Thanks Ellen for your outstanding contribution to the mental health arena!
