Before joining Groom, Ellen served as a regulation attorney in the Solicitor’s Office of the Department of Labor (DOL) and a Pension Law Specialist in the Office of Fiduciary Interpretations of the DOL’s Employee Benefits Security Administration.

What we do here ultimately helps people obtain benefits from their employers and helps employers provide benefits to their employees. That has meaning for me.
