In over a decade of work as a creative with a heart for changing the world and her community, our founder Margo Ellis has not led product selling campaigns, but also social movements that have changed culture...
Coaching & Consulting Services
EELA CEO Margo Ellis relocated from Silicon Valley to the Deep South during the 2020 Pandemic with a vision of offering coaching and consulting services to equalize the inequality divides caused by lack of continuing education and access to business best practices in communities with strong technology ecosystems.
In the 1930’s two of Margo’s Great Grandmothers were able to migrate– one from Italy to America and the other from the Deep South to San Francisco.
In this era known as The Great Migration, the church served as a “town square” where ideas were shared and partnerships were made.
As church attendance has gone down, so has the power of the church as an equalizer of opportunity. Margo hopes to reverse these trends by providing the same best-in-class coaching and consulting services to Deep South organizations that she offered in Silicon Valley to elevate an “Underground Railroad” of information to an information super highway accessible to all.
Bipartisan Justice Forum
On contract as the Communications Director for Bipartisan Justice 2020, Margo oversaw communications and press coordination for the Presidential Forum at Benedict College in 2019.

Creative Director in Chief
As the founder and CEO of EELA PR and Marketing, Margo built a full service creative agency with the ability to produce print and video content empowering leaders to tell their story and establish brand loyalty.
In addition to providing creative campaign assets, we also provide strategic advisement and consulting to discover ideal customer profiles and product-market fit.
SVA Storm the Hill
After a decade of service in the Marines, Margo didn't just want to use her GI Bill at Georgetown, she wanted to use the opportunity to change the world.
Margo was the Communications director for a campaign that galvanized 300 student veteran leaders from across the country for a storm the hill campaign to highlighted a need to create access to mental health care and equity for women in the military.
The result led to legislative and policy changes that made it safe for veterans to get mental healthcare without jeopardizing our security clearances and paved the way for equitable integration of women in the military.
A decade later Student Veterans of America (SVA) which was just a fledgling organization at the time, has grown into one of the most powerful conveners of Veterans in America.
