Prior to joining the Bingham Centre, she lived in Tokyo for two years, where she taught English. Ellis returned to the UK to pursue her academic and research studies and has since been involved with various organisations committed to access to justice and the provision of legal aid. 

Ellis was involved with the charity Bail for Immigration Detainees, providing support to those in immigration detention and assisting with their bail hearings. She also partnered with the Public Law Project on the UK Government's 2018 Domestic Abuse Bill Consultation and worked with organisations campaigning for equal rights to strengthen their Consultation responses.
