I had the opportunity to work intimately with Ellie at DentalOne Partners as peer on our senior leadership team. There are very few people that you can genuinely count on to get the job done, and get the job done right. In any partnership between our teams, I found Ellie to be a strong strategic and tactical leader. She could clearly articulate the objective and had already done her homework on the integration points, prepared her team, and posited solutions to obvious challenges. She knows her field and knows how to deliver results. Period.
