Ellen moved to California from her home state of Pennsylvania after attending Penn State University as a history major, and where she held her first job working in a bookstore.  Her goals were to live in a more diverse setting and become active in the social justice movements of the 1970’s which were abounding in the San Francisco Bay Area.
