President and Mrs. Bush’s granddaughter, Ellie LeBlond Sosa, is based in Boston, Massachusetts, where she works for a healthcare nonprofit. Her passion though lies in health and wellness. She earned her certificate as a holistic health counselor in 2013 and teaches fitness in Boston as well as on retreats for women around the world. Ellie met her husband of four years at her grandparent’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine, and was married there in 2014. Her grandparent’s love story is one that she looks up to and strives to emulate in her own life.

Kelly Anne Chase is a New England-based writer and magazine editor. She earned her bachelor’s in history from American University and her master’s in publishing and writing from Emerson College. She lives with her husband on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
