Writer and editor based in Chicago
Hi! My name is Elli. I'm a writer and editor living in Chicago. I love sports (most intensely the Green Bay Packers), my book club, white wine, running, South Africa and writing about everything from relationships to health to grammar. I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and although I love almost everything about the state, I'm sorry to say that I do not like cheese.
To any of you who are feeling off right now, let me reassure you: Your anxiety isn’t sending you any sort of hidden message
