Tiffany Ellison is a proud mother of four adventure seeking, hard working children. She believes her greatest achievement is raising children that live life to the fullest and find joy in serving others.
Tiffany has raced her bike across America to help raise over $200,000.00 for organ donation research. Organ donation is a cause close to her heart as her youngest son was born with a congenital liver disease. Over the past 12 years Tiffany has put in countless hours spreading awareness about organ donation as a Donate Life Ambassador. Watching her son receive a life saving blood donation was a life changing moment of complete gratitude to the people that so generously donate with out ever knowing about the lives they save.
This past year Tiffany fell in love with the Reininger family and grew a very special bond with their son Austin. Taking Austin to parks in his wheel chair and watching how difficult it was for him to interact with the other children due to his physical disability and lack of play structures fitted for children in wheelchairs was heart wrenching. Tiffany’s heart has forever been changed and is devoted to raising awareness and funds for children with different abilities.

Amy started her career in Special Education in 1998 as a classroom aide at Sacramento’s ABC School. Shortly after graduating from California State University, Sacramento, with degrees in Psychology and Child Development, she took a position with Alta California Regional Center, coordinating services and advocacy for children, ages 3-18, with various developmental disabilities. The field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) called her back and she returned to working with children with autism, this time consulting and managing in-home programs. As her own children grew, Amy looked for ways to bring fun and natural learning into ABA programs for children with autism. She opened Square One Autism Services with her two business partners in September of 2008. With a strong desire to serve her native El Dorado County, Amy returned to El Dorado Hills in 2009. Over the course of the past 10+ years, Square One has provided play-based ABA intervention for hundreds of children and young adults throughout the El Dorado, Placer, Yolo, Sacramento and San Joaquin counties. Amy feels passionate about finding the fun in learning and helping her clients access leisure and recreation opportunities in their communities. Today, Amy continues to support Square One managing the HR and financial departments, while also raising her own 5 children with her husband of 20 years.
