Program and Events Manager
Born in Indiana, but raised in Georgia, Ellie Colt joins the Cherokee Office of Economic Development after wrapping up her Senior year at Mercer University. Ellie graduated from the Stetson School of Business and Economics at Mercer University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing with a minor in management. Ellie is currently working toward her Master of Business Administration degree in Marketing from Mercer University as well.
Although new to the Economic Development field, Ellie is no stranger to COED as she completed a marketing internship with the team in the summer of 2017 where she managed the “Cherokee In Photos” campaign. Ellie is also a recent graduate from the Georgia Tech Basic Economic Development Course.
Brought into Cherokee because of family, Ellie chooses to work and play here due to the web of connections that is so easily facilitated through Cherokee’s strong sense of community.
