Ella Dove

Specialisms: Amputation, trauma and disability, diversity, body image, resilience, overcoming adversity, journalism, creative writing

Ella Dove is a journalist, author and trustee of the Limbless Association.


In 2016, she lost her right leg below the knee following a freak running accident – tripping over while out for a jog.


Since then, she has been on a mission to improve knowledge and awareness of amputation, trauma and disability, through her writing, charity campaigns and speaking events.


Ella is available to speak about all these topics, as well as finding positivity through adversity, resilience and the healing power of writing. There is hope after trauma. There is light through the dark. It can – and it will – get better.
