Eleanor Ranney-Mendoza

The great-grand daughter of Edward L. Ryerson, Ellie continues her family’s tradition of involvement at the Brushwood Center while offering a delightfully fresh perspective as a native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and a professional musician. A soprano with advanced music degrees, Ellie performs early music, opera and chamber music. Ellie lives in Miami with her husband, Javier Jose Mendoza, who is a professor and director of orchestral studies, and their three young children.
