Ella-Reaves Vaughan "ERV"


Ella was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, and now is a 3rd-year student at UVA majoring in Media Studies with a minor in Health & Well-being.


Her post-college plans include pursuing a public-relations career path in either Sports Marketing & Management or the Food & Entertainment Industry.


She is a former defensive player on the UVA Women’s Lacrosse team for two years while earning ACC Honor Roll and helped organize the Athletes-in-Action inner-team bible study group. Ella continues to serve as team co-ambassador for Morgan’s Message to educate and create conversation about mental health in the student-athlete community at UVA.


Ella is currently training for a half marathon and enjoys managing a personal food & cooking Instagram account, @erv.eats (shameless plug!). She is super pumped to share the love of lacrosse with the 2029/30 team and enjoy the Charlottesville Fall season. Happy to be called either Ella-Reaves or “ERV” for short.
