Ellie Williams joined WDVM in May of 2018. She is a graduate of Northeastern University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. While at Northeastern, Ellie won two New England Student Emmys and was nominated for a New England Emmy. She also played rugby during college and coached a youth team in her spare time.
Ellie first developed her love for news in a television production class in high school. That first class led her to intern at MSNBC and News12 New Jersey during college, as a booking assistant and special projects intern respectively. During her senior year, she spent two months in Greece reporting on the refugee crisis.
Though she’s originally from New Jersey, Ellie decided to stay in Boston after graduation to work for 7News, first as a production assistant and later as a video tape coordinator. But she’s glad to be in Winchester and getting to know the Shenandoah Valley.
When she’s not working, Ellie enjoys hiking, watching rugby, and trying out new restaurants. If you see her around, feel free to say hi!
