Ella Hicks is Founder & Executive Director of Rebel Thriver, Life Coach for women, domestic violence advocate, writer, mother, artist, and everyday philosopher. 


I am a survivor of many things, however my biggest battle thus far came from surviving  my 12-year abusive marriage and it’s aftermath. It’s amazing how one relationship can change the entire trajectory of your life. Seeking safety I ran with my small children and left everything I knew behind; my home, career, colleagues, and friends in return for freedom and safety. I believe that we are meant to do so much more than simply survive our lives; we must give ourselves permission to live and begin again. We are allowed to Thrive.

I would like to thank Elizabeth Mayville for allowing me to use this painting as my likeness. For the safety of my family and myself I cannot use my own likeness. Thank you Elizabeth you have certainly filled a huge need of mine.

    1. Hi Cindy, I am always working on a book but I haven’t yet published one. My first one is going to be about my life and how I overcame. Stay tuned and thanks for asking! xo Ella
