Welcome our 2021 New Ellinwood Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors!
The Ellinwood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce three new slate of members to the Chamber Board of Directors for 2021!
Originally from NW Kansas, Jonell attended FHSU and graduated in 1993 with a B.B.A. She has been a member of the Ellinwood community since 1995 and purchased a home in town in 2012. Currently, Jonell is the Office Manager for RA Transport, LLC and owns a small trucking brokerage, Ratjan Logistics, LLC. Jonell is an avid photographer and loves to take pictures of Ellinwood’s community events and at EMS/EHS sporting events. She is a member of St. John Lutheran Church where she is an organist and teaches a mid-week catechism class. Jonell is the proud mom of two boys.
Danielle is a parent and community member in Ellinwood. She is married to Corey French, an Ellinwood High graduate. They met while he was working in my hometown, married, and relocated to the area in 2011. Have both been raised and educated in a small town the desire for our three kids to experience the same was a given. We knew Ellinwood was the town! In the years we have been living here I managed to land an amazing job at a local small business, N’Bloom Floral & Gifts. Danielle enjoys baking and woodworking projects in my free time.
Annette has been a resident of Ellinwood for 35 years when she married her husband Jeff. She has been an employee of Ellinwood Packing Plant, Inc. for most of those years, (except for 7 years when she stayed home to raise her babies) helping Jeff and his family run the Packing Plant. For the past 3 years, she has been the Office Manager. She is a member of St. John Lutheran Church and is active in the Choir, LWML-Lutheran Women In Mission, and past Sunday School, VBS, and LIGHT teacher. She has served on the board of the Library Foundation, and several boards when her kids were in school. She and Jeff raised their 2 children here and are blessed that both have returned to Ellinwood to pursue their careers. She loves the small-town feel of Ellinwood because it's so much like her hometown of Oberlin. She enjoys attending the events that the Chamber hosts and is grateful for the chance to help promote our businesses and the community.
