This month we wanted to feature another new face at Gardner/Fox, meet Mrs. Ellen Grossi! Ellen has been with Gardner/Fox for 3 years and has been climbing the ranks since she arrived. Originally she was hired as an estimating assistant and has now worked her way up to a residential project manager.
Before landing at Gardner/Fox Ellen grew up in Colorado, attended the University of Colorado in Boulder, and went on to work as an assistant project manager for a local firm. Fate landed her in Philadelphia, and we welcomed here to Gardner/Fox!
Working as a Project Manager you oversee entire projects, and Ellen’s favorite so far has been one of our newest basement renovations in Gladwyne! We can’t give away much yet, but we are turning an unfinished basement into a one-of-a-kind grown-up playground (think wave tile and wall-hung toilets)!
Now, Ellen does have a life outside of the office. She recently tied the knot(and we’re still trying to get used to her new name), congratulations! She now lives with her husband and cat, Olly, in Philadelphia. When she’s not building awesome basements, she enjoys running, restoring furniture, working with Habitat for Humanity, and traveling. In fact, last year she traveled to the Amazon for an entire week and hiked 26 miles to Machu Picchu! Obviously, Ellen enjoys a good challenge, which is why we’re so happy to have her with us. Keep it up, Ellen!
