Sunam Ellis is an actor, director, and teaching artist based out of Seattle. Her training began with her studies at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, and after receiving her BA in both Theatre Performance and Human Development, she built up her resume of living life: marriage, international travel, and three beautiful children.
