Elle joined Quinlivan & Hughes, P.A. as an Attorney in February of 2021 and practices primarily with the Employment Law group. 

Elle's parents were both officers for the St. Paul Police Department, and their service to the public inspired her from a young age. She always felt fortunate to have a strong support system that encouraged her to pursue a career that allowed her to utilize her skills to help those in need.

While in law school, Elle served as an Assistant Editor for the Mitchell Hamline Law Review, a Judicial Extern for the Honorable Richard Kyle in Ramsey County, and a Certified Student Attorney for the Ramsey County District Attorney's Office.
