About the

Author

Eleanor Gaccetta

Eleanor (Ellie) Gaccetta, MBA is an author, speaker and home cook/baker.  Formally she was a legislative and policy analyst for the State of Colorado, the City and County of Broomfield, and after leaving government services she was a private contractor.  Ellie’s almost forty-year career ceased when her mother fell and broke her hip at age 92.

 

Thus began Ellie’s own journey of being a 24/7 sole caregiver for her mother for the next nine and one half years.  During that time her book One Caregiver’s Journey was born with personal memories, insight and advice for caregivers.  The book is a snapshot of the realities, changes and challenges of caregiving.  During the six months after her mother’s passing at age 102, Ellie journaled about her reintegration back into the world.  “The biggest challenge to reintegration after nearly 10 years of isolation has been to not be an outsider looking into the world that passed you by.”

 

Ellie’s second book, Generations of Good food, wasn’t planned.  It was a labor of love that consumed her time during the pandemic lockdown.  It incorporates recipes, stories, and anecdotes from six generations of her Italian family.  It is a book for the kitchen novice and seasoned cook and baker.

Today she lives in a suburb west of Denver where she enjoys spending time with family, being outdoors, cooking, baking and gardening.  During the pandemic she committed to remaining healthy, getting in shape and staying fit.  After the pandemic she walks 2-3 miles daily and has become a gym shark.
