Associate Spotlight – Ellen Driesel

Ellen Driesel – Title Officer, Twin Falls, Idaho branch

Ellen Driesel is a Title Officer in Alliance Title’s Twin Falls, Idaho branch. With 12 years in the title insurance industry, 4 ½ of which have been with Alliance, Ellen’s daily duties revolve around everything title-related. But, what she enjoys most about what she does is discovering the history about various properties and the vital behind the scenes role that people in the title industry play.

Integrity is Ellen’s favorite Alliance core value because, she says, “If you have integrity in all that you do, and hold yourself to the highest standard, the rest falls naturally in place.”

When asked who she admires most, Ellen said her parents and explains, “They are my heroes, my role models and my biggest supporters. Without their unconditional love, constant encouragement and wise guidance, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.”

Outside of work, Ellen says she is a homebody and really enjoys working on home improvement projects or in her yard where she can play in the dirt. She says, “When it’s time for fun and relaxation, you will find me sharing a meal with the family, attending my son’s extracurricular activities, watching a good crime drama on TV or catching up on my zzzzzz’s.”

‘Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves’ is Ellen’s favorite quote. She explains that the quote came from a fortune cookie she had not long ago and the message has resonated with her ever since. She says, “I love this saying for its humble truth. When you brighten someone’s day with a simple smile or small gesture, it is nearly impossible to be sad, depressed or full of self-pity.”
