About Ella Hicks

Ella Hicks is Founder & Executive Director of Rebel Thriver, a Life Coach, 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 know that all of of us are survivor’s of something in this lifetime, and like it or not, we are all in this together. We don’t have to settle for feeling like we lost the lottery because life is full of opportunity and incredible joy. Hard work and determination can change the course of your life, your thoughts, and how you choose to perceive things; you just need to be open to a shift in your life. 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.


 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, and so when I came upon this painting by Elizabeth I was ecstatic. It is a great likeness to me and she is allowing me to use it out of the goodness of her heart. 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

I want to translate your messages in to spanish…I love what Reading the posts makes me feel and even though I can´t translate it in to all languages, I would love to give it a shot in spanish…Let me know your thoughts??
