Education and Experience
Ellen earned her law degree from Hofstra University School of Law (cum laude). While at Hofstra, she represented abused and neglected children on behalf of the Child Advocacy Clinic.

Prior to her law career, she taught English and worked for several major stock brokerage houses. After graduating from law school, Ellen worked for a boutique law firm, focusing on corporate and securities law.
Ellen was instrumental in bringing Special Education PTA to her neighborhood school district, and served on the Board of SEPTA for several years.
