    Better Living with Design

    I'm Elle, and I created Better Living with Design to act as an effective Center for Well-Being, in order to help people use scientific insights from positive psychology and organizational science to build lives of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.


    I'm a writer, researcher, instructor, practitioner, and consultant. Whether it's through using research to create a flourishing workplace (where we spend 1/3 of our lives!) or psychology, development and lifestyle design to craft well-rounded and rich inner lives at home, I'm dedicated with providing the tools to help people transform their home and work lives from surviving to thriving.


    I've studied psychology, education, and management at The University of North Carolina, Johns Hopkins University and Harvard University, and I'm currently in the process of becoming a certified practitioner in Counseling, Positive Psychology and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
