Ellice McDonald

Event Coordinator

Ellice started her time at SEM as an event management intern back in 2021. Her first event to manage was Oktoberfest Chicago and she’s never looked back since! Now she’s managing major festivals and endurance walks like the OSF Beverly Breast Cancer Walk and Chicago Pride Fest. In Ellice’s free time, she loves to cook (she even has dreams of writing a cookbook one day)!
