Ellie Hakimi

Elizabeth (Ellie) has lived in the Chicagoland area her whole life and always loved nothing more than animals. In college at DePaul University she studied psychology and communications in hopes of finding a way to combine both passions for social service and animal welfare. Before graduating, she started to intern at PAWS Chicago animal shelter as an adoption counselor and loved every second. Shortly after, she began working at Pooch Hotel in Lincoln Park and went through Petco’s trainer program, also attending Animal Behavior College for dog obedience.

Once the Pooch Hotel and Paradise 4 Paws families came together she was fortunate enough to join the team as the Lead In Resort Trainer for both Chicago Paradise 4 Paws locations. You might also catch her teaching and assisting group classes around the area. She especially enjoys working with puppies to develop their manners and relationships with their families.

Ellie has a little husky/pitbull mix named Cinder that she rescued in 2015. She also has a Maine coon kitty rescue named Benny. She intends to pursue a master’s degree related to dog behavior and dedicate her career to working with therapy and service dogs.

Badger has drastically improved and so have I.
