Mark Ellingson

I was born and raised in Rochester, MN, along with my two brothers and one sister.  Upon high school graduation, I attended St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN, and truly believed I would never return to live in Rochester, as I thought it was too small.  Never say never because after graduating college and living in other mid-west cities over the next ten years, family and business brought me back to this great community.  My wife is Registered Nurse at Mayo Clinic.  We have four children and greatly appreciate being able to raise them in a safe, growing and vibrant community.

I joined the Board of Directors in 2021.  However, I’ve known of ExercisAbilities for many years through my brother. He received physical therapy treatment from them for a long time for his many special needs. As a family member, they truly made a difference for him by caring for and addressing his specific situation. Now as a Board member, I am able to see that they do the same for all of their clientele and follow their mission every day, ‘make healthy, happy and independent possible for everyone’. I look forward to being a productive member of the ExercisAbilities community and contributing to their mission and continual growth.
