Elle spends her time volunteering in her local community, as well as the state and local Realtor® associations. She has chaired various committees, served as a Board member for several years and was the 2022 Board President for RAYAC (first Black woman), and helps out at local community events whenever possible. Elle is invested in her community and career, taking her role as a community member and leader seriously.

Filling Littler Free Libraries with books

Women United strives to build a stronger community by promoting literacy and lifelong learning. We currently support six Little Free Libraries, in York City, Red Lion, and Dover. The libraries are just one of United Way of York County's #yorkreads initiatives, which offer additional outlets to distribute age-appropriate books to children and families who may not otherwise have access, and to encourage reading in the home.
