Confetti toss. Mic Drop.

You’re cordially invited to…

SPARK, a 3-day message & media training {*cough* self-expression soiree} geared toward finding your voice and igniting your brand like never before.

Spark is for you if you know you have a message that’s worth sharing and you’re ready to learn how to speak about it with poise, confidence and clarity.

  • You might be no stranger to the spotlight, but you’ve recently experienced a shift in who you are or what you do, and struggle to find the words + confidence to express this new angle to the world.
  • Or, a juicy media opportunity or speaking gig has landed in your lap… but your heart pounds and your palms sweat just thinking about it.
  • You might not know exactly what you’ll say with the microphone in hand… how will you use every second to your advantage? Inspire people to take action? Handle tough questions?
  • Maybe you even feel like what you have to say has already been said before, will be misunderstood, or that you’re not meant to be center stage.
  • Or perhaps you’re madly in love with the work you’re doing, but when you talk about it your audience glazes over, and what you’re saying just doesn’t resonate.

Sound familiar? Then SPARK is what you’ve been waiting for…


In this intimate, playful, and soul-stirring experience, you will refine your message, amplify your confidence, and mingle with like-minded women on a mission.

I created SPARK because I know first-hand what it takes to truly harness the power of your voice (both on camera and off).

After working as an NBC on-air reporter for 7 years, I quit my job to found my dream business, Pink Kisses: a website dedicated to helping women overcome heartbreak, stronger and faster than ever before. I used my skills as a journalist to identify the unique story within my business idea, packaged it into core soundbites, and began consistently releasing online video content. I also recognized the power of media interviews.

Within one month of launching, I appeared as a guest on the TODAY Show. And before the year’s end, I attracted coverage in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, SHAPE Magazine, Cosmo radio and more. I also used online videos to build a vibrant community of loyal fans & developed a keynote speech that I used to speak on stages across the country.

I decided to start Media Bombshell to share what I’d learned with fellow movers and shakers who wanted to leverage the power of purposeful speaking + media savvy to create thriving communities of loyal customers.

While part of what I teach in SPARK falls under the umbrella of messaging strategy, the experience is really so much deeper.

There is a special kind of magic that occurs when a group of women gather, share their stories, and have their unique expression lovingly witnessed.

Hands shake. Voices wobble. Tears may even flow. But each woman’s story… her message…the voice deep inside her eventually tumbles out and she is able to see herself in a whole new way.

“Spark was one of the most powerful experiences I have encountered in my life. So much more than media training, it changed the way I view myself.”

–Susie Cannon | Founder & CEO, Linden

“Ellie helped me shape my entrepreneurial journey into a concise + irresistible story that spoke directly to the pain points and desires of my ideal clients. I now feel confident and poised in interviews and rather than rambling on and on (which I totally used to do) I have clear + juicy soundbites at the ready.

In just one weekend I also formed several deep relationships with women I’m still in touch with–who have become friends and business buddies. If you’re looking make the most of media attention, get re-inspired, + connect with fellow power girls, the SPARK is where it’s at!”

My promises to you…

  • It’ll be an intimate setting with a lovely group of people in a beautiful space (expect positive energy galore)!
  • I’ll bring the coffee. And the tea. And nibbly bits + yummy snacks throughout the days.
  • You’ll get to enjoy a scrumptious lunch in the sweet, super hip Austin neighborhood that surrounds us.
  • I’ll give you loads of my best insider tips & juicy teachings, personal experiences from my time as an NBC reporter and as spokesperson for my business, plus plenty of helpful tools for busting through your barriers.
  • You’ll get a spotlight where you can ask me anything that strikes your fancy & I’ll give you direct (and love-filled) feedback on your biggest challenges and deepest questions. Whether it’s how to answer a tough question in an interview, connect with your viewers through the camera lens, captivate the audience at the start of your next big talk, or anything else holding you back, you’ll get a veteran reporter’s perspective on all of it!

I signed up for Spark because I wanted to get more clarity with my message and my mission, and I had a strong feeling that Ellie would the one to help.  I am so glad I attended!  Ellie is an incredible teacher and has such passion and FUN while leading, it is contagious!  

Having such an intimate group of women from so many different types of business was so fascinating and eye-opening. Ellie attracts amazing women and I learned just how important messaging is for all types of businesses.

The unique group setting will allow you to learn from your fellow participants’ questions and gain insights you never would on your own.  It’s also a great networking opportunity {attendees regularly stay in touch, become close friends, as well as affiliate and JV partners}.  And, if you’re considering working with me in a larger capacity it’s a great introduction to my coaching style and what it’s like to collaborate.

Now I want you to take a moment to imagine…

  • Having answers to all your burning questions around messaging, media interviews, pitching, videos, and talks.
  • Receiving honest + actionable feedback on your brand from my own well-trained eye plus that of a roomful of fellow powerhouse women.
  • Experiencing a renewed excitement to speak up about your work.
  • Learning creative new ways to play on camera, on stage, and at networking events.
  • Bursting with ideas for on-brand content that your audience will adore.
  • Totally thriving in your next talk, interview or even networking event!

In a word – the retreat was transformational! Ellie was so grounded and she created a beautiful, fun and a safe atmosphere for all of us to dig deep enough into our vulnerabilities and passions and to find our universal truths that describe our purpose.

It was only 2.5 days and I feel like I have had a month’s vacation. Refreshed, renewed, rediscovered and ready! Totally worth the trip from Northern Ontario, Canada!”

After many years of doing this work, here’s what I know for sure…

When a woman has the tools, strategy, and PERMISSION to speak her truth…authentically, articulately and unabashedly…she becomes unstoppable.

And I’m on a mission to create more unstoppable women.

Are you ready to become one of them?
