Who is Elliott Killian?

At the age of 19 years old, I was elected to public office as a Ferguson Township Supervisor in Central Pennsylvania. I served my local community in a four year term. Afterwards I started businesses and traveled the world for a year. Upon returning to the United States I worked in various organizations in project management.

During the COVID-19 pandemic I decided to go to grad school and received a Master’s of Science, Forestry from Lakehead University.
