Elle L. Lynch - Public Health Advocate, Writer, Creative Placemaker
Elle creates written work, experiences and third spaces that support community and raise awareness at the intersection of social, cultural, and environmental issues.
As a public health professional, Elle's work addresses inequities at the crossroads of health and the environment. She advocates for birthing people and children, the psychosocial benefits of urban green space and food gardens, the necessity of justice centered practice, the resilience of community care, and the role of storytelling as an essential component in healing and the generation of a more just and joyful future.
Elle’s writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines, blogs, and scholarly journals. Her consulting services have been utilized by community based and national level organizations to develop multimedia content and innovative programming that center the stories of lived experience.
As a cook, Elle owned and operated the raw vegan Clean Plate, the farm to table Daily Grub, the collaborative Food Cart Project, and the subscription service Comfort Soup + Pie. These projects were motivated by a desire to bring people together around good food and cultivate a conversation about where our food comes from and the people who grow it.
Elle lives in Omaha with her partner, two rambunctious kids, three cats, and a scruffy dog in a much loved "cheap old house" with a sprawling kitchen garden.
