Gregory Ellis

Greg’s life took a profound turn during his 20-year incarceration.

Several years before his release Greg realized the importance of education and a keen understanding of business and economics. He completed an Associate’s degree in business administration, using this knowledge to strengthen his grasp on the financial world. His interest in trading stocks was at the forefront of his interest in The Last Mile, as he had learned about algorithm trading in his studies. The Last Mile’s web development program allowed Greg to use a computer for the first time.

Upon his release, he enrolled in a computer systems program at Post University and a specialized Node.js course through Code the Dream.

Currently, Greg finds immense satisfaction in supporting The Last Mile’s reentry team as a coordinator. He applies his relentless work ethic to play a meaningful role in a broader vision that he wholeheartedly believes in and has personally benefited from.
