Taking all that she has learned Ellen is now acting as a consultant to help others get their dreams launched in the most efficient and cost effective way possible.

Secrets of a Hand Model
As a top hand model and “hand-in” for many celebrities it’s been my job for over twenty years to keep my hands flawless and ageless. My Secrets talk is an insiders guide to the anti-aging protection, precautions and solutions for our most used part and most uncared for part: our hands. Forty is the new thirty and we all know how to take care of our face, hair and eyes. We all look and feel younger than ever before. But our hands have been forgotten – add to that daily sun exposure and dozens of hand washings each day – and you have hands that often look decades beyond your actual age! My quick and easy guide gives fun steps you can take to protect and beautify your hands; literally turn back the hands of time!
Living the “Hands-Free” Life
As the “Super Model of Hands”, the “Queen of the Close up” and the “It of Digits” it’s been my job to take the ultimate care of my hands. With that comes behavior that borders on obsessive to protect my hands in every situation. What I have found in my 20 years of this lifestyle is that this care really involves just taking my life one beat slower than the rest of the world. I find when I’ve had near catastrophes (paper cuts, knife mishaps, etc) it is always because I’ve been rushing…to do something and usually that something does not truly warrant taking “my life into my hands”. I’ve found that keeping the Hand Model credo of slow but sure has helped me enormously and not just in my work as a hand model. This philosophy translates to my psychological, mental and physical life as well. It’s basically the “slow food” methodology translated into a way of life.
This topic also has a humorous approach on how to be a hand model – or at least live like one….no cooking, no cleaning, etc.
