Ellen was born and raised in Columbia, SC and now currently resides in Charlotte. She attended Central Piedmont Community College and graduated with her AAS degree in the Occupational Therapy Assistant program. She loves working in the pediatric field and has broadened her knowledge with continuing education with Beckman Oral Motor and Therapeutic Listening programs. Ellen decided to seek a career in Occupational Therapy after homeschooling her son who had ADHD, Sensory Integration disorder and Auditory processing issues. With her children launching out into the world, she choose OT as a career due to techniques from OT helping her son work and live life more independently.
Ellen loves writing, walking in the beautiful Carolina sunshine and spending time at home with her husband and their Bengal cat named Colbie.
