Ellie Rodriguez

Team Assistant

Ellie brings to True Adventure a huge amount of support and administrative experience working for senior management and sales teams within a number of different industries including Jewellery, Cosmetics and Luxury Telecommunications. 

Ellie enjoys spending time with her ever expanding family whether it be long walks in the country or visiting family in Dorset & Spain. She loves summer music festivals & long runs in the country. With two young children her long-haul holidays have become less frequent but hoping to soon return to her favourite destinations – the Seychelles & Ibiza!

Ellie helps to support the schools, parents and colleagues to ensure the process runs smoothly and is always here to help.
