Ellie Dias

Ellie Dias is a professor of Human Biology with a graduate degree in Education and Biology. As a dedicated practitioner of meditation, contemplation, and yoga for over fourteen years she has merged her understanding of the human body, with a daily practice of meditation, incorporating it in a classroom setting. Passionate about Buddhist philosophy and thought, she started a local women’s spirit group.
Her previous careers include twelve years as a pediatric nurse at Baystate Medical Center; several years as a clinician focusing on babies at risk for Sudden Infant Death; a division Vice President of a women’s health care company; and teaching science at the middle grade level. 
On the creative side, Ellie is a self-taught artist of watercolor and pastels. She participates in both writing and critique workshops, and is a member of Sister’s in Crime. Soon to be published by Buddhapuss Ink, her first book Wisdom of the Big Red Suitcase: Finding What Matters in a World of Stuff charts her less than smooth spiritual journey to the Himalayas. Currently she is busy writing her first novel.
She resides with her husband Ron in Wilbraham, Massachusetts.
