Dr. Ellis is originally from Saskatoon, however moved abroad after completing her Bachelors of Science in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Saskatchewan. She then went on to complete a Masters of Science in Public Health Research at the University of Edinburgh and worked in research and policy development with a focus on dementia care in Scotland, UK.

Dr. Ellis returned to medical school in England at Warwick University prior to returning to Canada to complete her emergency medicine residency at the University of Ottawa and a Fellowship in Geriatric Emergency Medicine at the University of Toronto. She also managed to squeeze in some high altitude climbing and a Diploma in Mountain Medicine in Nepal during her training, but practices these skills mostly on herself while solo adventuring. She has gone full circle and is happy to be home, in Saskatoon, where she works clinically in the Emergency Department as well as holds a provincial role focused on developing and improving care for older adults in the ED through education, research, policy and quality improvement.

Dr Ellis also works as a Transport Physician, is the current Chair of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) Geriatric EM Committee, and is also on the leadership committee of the International Federation in Emergency Medicine (IFEM) Geriatric EM Special Interest Group.
