About Ellen

Ellen was the Middle School Site Manager at Lane Middle School last year and is excited to begin another year of positive energy with the students in Camp Fire. Ellen’s educational background has allowed her to develop storytelling techniques to allow students to really have a voice in their own stories and perception of self.

Hailing from Washington, DC,  Ellen moved to Portland in 2016. She enjoys long distance cycling, day hikes, slow running, rock climbing and reading as many books as Powell’s has to offer. You’ll be able to find her bouncing around town looking for new activities and events.



Past Experience

Ellen’s work with school based youth non-profits started with her work with Kid Power. Throughout her time at the program, she worked to promote academic achievement and leadership through engaging after school programming.


Ellen holds a bachelor’s degree in documentary production from Ithaca College in upstate New York.
