Ellen's Life

Having lived in many places, including New York, Rome, Santa Fe, and Santa Barbara, I now live in Washington's San Juan Islands.

I am grateful for an excellent education at Bronxville Elementary School in suburban New York, New Trier High School on Chicago's North Shore, and Wellesley College near Boston. Staying in touch with family and with numerous friends I have met along the way and online adds zest.

A mother and grandmother as well as a writer, I find it rewarding to help people tell their life stories. Thanks to my years as a consultant in business, demonstrating how to write effectively, I am also keen to work with corporations and entrepreneurs. And as a former Realtor in Santa Rosa, California, where I wrote the local Realtor newsletter, I now can help clients record the histories of the houses where they have lived and loved.
