Ellie started shooting aged 13 at Sevenoaks School, going on to keep the sport up after leaving, firstly for the sixth form then at Southampton University.
Notable successes in Ellie’s shooting career include winning the Edna Parker Trophy in Guernsey whilst touring with the NRA team in 2012, and then going on to tour with England to South Africa in 2013. On home turf, she has secured second place in the Police Rifle Aggregate during the Imperial meeting for the last two years, then winning the Police Sport UK Championships short range competitions in 2018. Sadly a demanding career takes away the rest of her time, and being a shift worker, she can probably never tell you what day or time it is! In her spare hours, Ellie also teaches various fitness classes and regularly takes part in Spartan obstacle course races, acclimatised of course by wet and muddy ranges!
