Ella Williams began working at Gateway Arts in 2013.
Williams has put her lifelong passion to work. As a young girl she collected Vogue magazines and dreamed of wearing the sleek new designs every month. Pursuing an education, she earned a certificate in Fashion Merchandising from Bryan and Stratton Junior College in 1968. Williams worked at Filene’s and Lord and Taylor before becoming an experienced home-care aide. She spent her days caring for others, but carved out time to knit and make jewelry throughout her working life. In 2009, after retiring, Williams co-founded a business, “Scarves, Accessories and More by Gifted Hands.”
