Ellie first became involved with NPN as a parent member in 2009 with the birth of her son, finding comfort in a New Moms Group. More than six years later her son and four-year-old daughter are certainly giving her a run for the money! And congratulations to the Ander family on the birth of number three! They welcomed another boy in June of 2015. Ellie enjoys family-time most of all, but never looses her connection with the grownup world via work, play and date nights with her husband. Ellie and her family can often be found strollering around and goofing off at local parks and restaurants.
