Ellen Abramson is living her “second act.” After a thirty-year career in fundraising for the University of Michigan Health System, American Red Cross and Stephen M. Ross School of Business, Ellen carried out a plan to transition from full-time work for a large institution to a life in which she is in charge of her time and able to focus on what gives her life joy and meaning.
To make this possible, Ellen and her husband paid down $93,000 of personal debt within a five-year period. She and her family live debt-free, empowered by a monthly plan for saving, spending and giving.
Ellen holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Chicago and Master of Social Work degree from the University of Michigan. She is president of her family business and Money Mindfulness, LLC.
