Candace Anthony - The Ellis Agency, LLC

Are you from Saint Louis? if not, where (and why did you come to Saint Louis)? 

Yes! Born and raised.

Which High School did you attend, (if you attended high school in MO)? 

Gateway High School (now Gateway STEM)

Which area is the best? Why? (County (North, South, West), City, St. Charles, Chesterfield, East Saint Louis, etc...) 

Hmmm...I would have to say North St. Louis city. It is where I spent a lot of time growing up and has shaped who I am today. I also love the architecture of the city.

Tell me something about yourself that you would like to share. 

I would say I am a pretty down to earth woman with a drive to fulfill my purpose in life. I believe anyone can achieve their wildest of dreams if they are provided access to the right tools and understanding from those around them. Oh! And I am a huge foodie :)

What is/are the name(s) of your business(es) and describe it/them (please provide a website and email address if possible). Why did you start it/them? 

The Ellis Agency, LLC is my business. I offer educational consulting services that aid college bound students in finding a best fit college for them. A best fit college is one that supports the social and emotional needs of a student in addition to their academic and vocational goals. I started on this path because I have a great appreciation for higher education and I recognize the gaps between college access, college enrollment, and college graduation.

What three words would describe your business(es)? (If you own more than one business please give three words to describe each business) 

The Ellis Agency, LLC would be described as collaborative, knowledgeable, and motivating.
