Karen ‘Ell’ Ellison

Sr. Program Manager

Karen “Ell” Ellison joined KTA in 2018. Her projects are far-flung, including sites in Miami, San Francisco and Boston, and she is adept at managing the communication and documentation systems necessary for the successful execution of remote projects. She has more than 20 years of experience working with owners on their residential projects — first at an award-winning AD100 architecture and interior design firm in New York City and now at KTA — and knows how to continually move projects forward with efficiency, skill and grace. Her knowledge and attention to detail are unsurpassed, and her academic background ensures clear, precise communications throughout all project aspects.

Ell earned her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Literature from Cornell University and her Master of Arts degree from Yale University. A native New Yorker, she lives in Brooklyn with her husband and teenage son. She enjoys attending her son’s baseball games as well as dinner parties and gatherings with friends. Ell writes poetry and is a published playwright with productions presented throughout the United States and at international venues.
