Simply Candle Supplies is more than just a wholesaler, our people are the heart of the company. We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to some of them, who makes SCS, SCS.
Ellen has been a part of our team since the day we opened our Gold Coast showroom. It’s a bit hard to narrow down what she does at SCS because she is across almost everything including customer service, administration, marketing and inventory control. She’s our ‘go-to’ girl who helps keep the wheels turning at Simply to ensure everything runs smoothly for our customers and our in-house team.
Drawn to the job with her love of creativity, making her own candles, diffusers and soaps, she not only loves the creative process but finds the whole exercise a form of meditation. She can talk for hours about all the different things that can be done with all of our different products.
Outside of work, Ellen has a strong love of the outdoors and being active. Whether it be hiking through the hinterland or embarking on her next camping adventure she is always on the go. Last year, she set out to achieve something she thought wouldn’t have been impossible and signed up to run the Gold Coast Half Marathon. Throughout her endeavour she was able to raise over $2000 for the MND (Motor Neuron Disease) and Me Foundation, a cause close to her heart. This year, she has signed up again and is aiming to break her time record, while hoping to raise more money to help those living with MND. If you would like to support Ellen in achieving her goal you can find out more here.
Ellen loves her animals, and while she only has two guinea pigs at the moment, they are very much spoilt with cuddles and are often treated to their favourite food, spinach. A passion revisited is dance, slipping back into her point shoes Ellen has been known to glissade around the office.
As a fundamental team member of SCS, Ellen hopes to see our family grow and is always happy to help. Whether it be finding out the basics of candle making in our candle making classes, knowing how to create bespoke soaps, or tips on how to make a tasty cocktail she is always ready to spring into action making her a beloved member of the SCS family.
