Ellen Lyell

Learning Skills Advisor

Born and raised in the small town of Coleambally in the Riverina, Ellen moved away from home in 2014 at age 17 to study at the University of Wollongong. During her degree she worked for the University as a demonstrator for an anatomy and physiology subject and worked part-time as a tutor for primary and secondary school students. Ellen completed her Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics with first class honours in 2017. Ellen hopes to pursue further study in the future and has an interest in academic research. Her research for her honours thesis on the topic of online learning was published last year in an academic journal. Since graduating Ellen had a year travelling overseas before coming back home to the Riverina. Ellen has been working as a renal dietitian in the Riverina providing complex nutrition education and support to her patients. Ellen is incredibly passionate about improving services to people living in rural and remote areas. Ellen joined the team at CUC Western Riverina in March 2020 and is excited to be helping students in the area develop their study skills.
