In her LinkedIn bio, she described her love for forecasting. She wrote, "I am absolutely fascinated by our atmosphere, and I love getting to teach people about it everyday. I have a strong passion for climate change and the environment. I love that people invite me inside their homes every morning when they watch Wake Up Atlanta, but my real passion comes in the actual data- the forecasting. I hope to making a lasting impact in meteorology and climate change."

Finding Biological Family

Dorsey was born on 2 May 1991. In a Facebook post dated 8 November 2020, Dorsey shared that she grew up knowing that she was adopted and she would get an opportunity to meet her biological mother when she turned 18 years old. 

She said she wasn't ready to search for her birth mom when the time came. However, she later became interested in learning about her birth mother at age 21 and her mother, Jan, helped her search. 

Unfortunately, an obituary from the internet described that her biological mother had passed away a year earlier, leaving behind her older half-brother and a sister. She said she didn't feel right reaching out to her half-siblings at the time.

While sitting in quarantine in 2020, Dorsey decided to sign up with a biotechnology company called 23andme which extracts DNA from a saliva sample and generates reports relating to the ancestry. The results showed the names of her half-brother and half-sister with the option of reaching out. 

Her half-sister, Emma, immediately reached out to her, stating that "she had been searching for Ella for years and she had also done the test a year before in hopes of finding Ella."

In November 2020, Emma and her brother, Noah, came to Atlanta to meet Ella and her mother and spent quality time with each other.

Who is Ella Dorsey Dating?

According to Dorsey's Instagram profile, it appears to be dating a man named Michael Strahl. Although she hasn't referred to him as her boyfriend or partner, it is confirmed that they are in a relationship.

On 17 June 2019, Dorsey shared Michael's photo on Instagram for the first time. She also recounted her outdoor excursion with her partner Michael at Red Rocks Park a few postings later. 

However, after 21 December 2019, when she last shared her time with Michael, there have been no similar updates on her profile. "2019 was pretty fantastic with you," Dorsey captioned the post at the time.

On the other hand, Michael has shared numerous pictures with Dorsey, including an outdoor date and watching a sports game together. In May 2020, Michael shared a photo of themselves and wrote, " I love you, Ella."
