Elle has an easy-going, chaotic, warm and durable personality. She decided to go back to work to escape the domestic chaos of her home-life, only to be thrown back into the breach every time she steps through the ED doors.
In her first few weeks of working in the ED, she clashed with Clinical Lead Connie Beauchamp. In July 2016, Elle was offered the permanent job as a consultant in the department and also made the department's Deputy Clinical Lead
In her childhood and teens, Elle was close friends with Jacob Masters during which time they penned nicknames for each other. Elle's nickname "Pancake" was due to her late development, and Jacob's was "Pudding", from the fact he was overweight and used to take extra portions of dessert as school. During their friendship, they took part in various activities from camping to canoeing together.
