Ellen Hunter Gans is a freelance writer, editor, and communications strategist. She founded Word Couture Consulting in 2009 and writes cool stuff for cool people. Ellen holds a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics, a Master of Arts degree from the University of Southern California, and a Bachelor’s degree from the College of Saint Benedict. All that school was a little self-indulgent and excessive.

Ellen loves highbrow audiobooks, lowbrow TV, late afternoon sunshine, adding to her “countries visited” list, Oxford commas, and the three Cs: cabernet, coffee, and carbohydrates.

She is also an endurance athlete who has stumbled through a full Ironman triathlon and fifteen marathons, including the Boston Marathon. (In 2013. While pregnant. That was scary.) She has written for Runner’s World magazine and produced stellar copy for myriad national and international clients.

She lives just outside Minneapolis with her awesome husband and adorable son.
