Ellen (El) Pellegrino has a major reason to celebrate. She is a 2023 Premier Business Women of Long Island Honoree for “Entrepreneur of the Year.”

Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” A woman that embodies this wise quotation is none other than Ellen Pellegrino.

“I do a lot of different things, I am not a new kid on the block,” she said with a sweet laugh.

Along with her husband Anthony, they co-own Windows on The Lake, and the Beach Club Estate, which are two noteworthy catering halls in the heart of Long Island’s Lake Ronkonkoma. “We have our facilities for 30 years and we’ve been doing catering 40 years. A place with a food taste like homemade, and the staff makes you feel like you’re the only people in the world… it has a beautiful view of the water and experience stays with you for a lifetime,” she said.

“And with our events Unlimited, we take care of every other detail so when you come by windows with Beach club or Catering facilities, you don’t have to worry about a thing from pictures to ceremonies to music we’ve got it all covered,” she added.

‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ Award recipient

“I am very blessed that I am a recipient of this ‘Entrepreneur’ Award,” she said. “I feel very honored because there are women are being recognized are brilliant, beautiful, and wonderful people.”

“The reason for that is that I am very passionate about life, and I teach others to be passionate as well. With our catering halls, we are known for creating magical moments. I think they gravitated towards me due to the spirituality aspect of my life. I love adding life to people’s lives,” she said.

Pellegrino continued, “In doing so, my husband, Anthony, went to college for music, so music is very important to us. I know a lot of people in music and freestyle, so we started doing ‘Anthony’s Live,’ and it is creating wonderful events where you feel like you are in Manhattan with the best of the best in what they do. We have a lot of different icons that are very good friends of ours.”

“While I was doing catering, it is very grueling on the body. I was always an intuitive and I was always into holistic things,” she said.

She noted that she has a super-sonic sensitivity. “I had an accident, and I raised my vibration to not to feel the pain and not use meds. That is why I call myself ‘Priestess El.’ I go to different dimensions, and I help other people do it too, and it helps other people change their lives. It’s a beautiful thing to know that you can do things that you couldn’t even fathom, so my perception is that we are all lights or little pixels like a TV, and we are all lights of God,” she added.

Age of New Beginnings

The priestess also loves making a difference via her holistic company, Age of New Beginnings. It has helped other people find and discover their distinct identity through soul searching, teaching, connecting, and she does so by using a holistic approach (mind, body, and spirit). She is also the host of her show of the same name.

“For 10 years I had a show on cable TV called ‘Age of New Beginnings’ and I was able to comprehend new modalities because I vibrate at those frequencies,” she said.

“I am bringing ‘Age of New Beginnings’ back with a vengeance,” she underscored. “We are not meant to be controlled or dictated. We are meant to be happy, and the right people will come in to restore justice. Going on to the path of justice, I am finishing my fifth movies.”

Her mission is to change a person’s life each day. She does this via intuitive energetic healing, hypnotherapy sessions, classes, retreats, and other special events.

“My goal is for people to live a quality life because if one is not happy then what’s the point? My classes on intuitive consciousness and they will resonate on an essence of truth,” she added.

The New Spalon

On top of all that, Pellegrino is the owner of My New Spalon, which offers hairstyles, haircuts, makeup, and bridals, which compliment people’s lifestyle transitions, and they also host special events.

She shared that she would do different events to raise money for good causes. “My goal is to help every soul shine,” she said. “I have been doing that for a long time especially with teaching classes and programs to raise money for different charities.”
