Ellen is the founder and owner of Helliemae’s. Helliemae’s makes intense, complex, hell-on-wheels caramels and other treats for adventurous eaters. Available in stores across the country and online from saltcaramels.com, Helliemae’s is growing fast and has just moved to a new production kitchen: a renovated mid-century service station in Wheat Ridge. The company has received accolades for its grown-up sweets from Real Simple, Sunset, the Wall Street Journal, Country Living, Family Circle, and other national publications. Ellen has been a guest on Frank Bonanno’s PBS show “Chef Driven”, and has appeared on 9News and Colorado Public Television.
Prior to launching Helliemae’s, Ellen was a strategy and operations executive and consultant at companies including Oracle and McKinsey and Company. She holds a BA from Rice University and an MBA from Columbia University. She lives in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood with her husband, Chris, and their giant schnauzer, Allie.
