Office Assistant Ellen Ricker at Odyssey School private school

Office Assistant

Ellen Ricker grew up in the crisp mountains of central Vermont learning the value of self-sustainability and living close to the earth. Ellen would go on to receive her Bachelors in Business from Cazenovia College in New York, and then a Psychology degree from Norwich University in Vermont. As a life-long learner Ellen has also studied primary education and biology. During this time Ellen honed her skills through opportunities with the Vermont Commission on Women and The United States Department of Agriculture. These experiences gifted her with skills in office administration, human rights advocacy, and file and data management. 

Ellen would take these skills with her when moving to Asheville in 2015. Here in Asheville she has worked in the healing arts, as well as the education sectors. Her dynamic skills and perspective are a gift to the Odyssey community! Whether it’s answering questions, facilitating ideas, or getting documents, Ellen is happy to assist you in any way possible. In her spare time Ellen enjoys spending time with her husband John and cat Opal, and of coarse playing among these ancient mountains.
