Welcome to Ellen's Writer's Corner. It is a great day to be an author and to be able to do what I am passionate about. I live to write.
Born in Leesburg Virginia, I was educated in the Northern Virginia school system. I served four years in the United States Army where I began my educational pursuit in the area of Communications and Journalism. Upon my return from a tour in Germany, I attained an Associates degree in Communications at Anne Arundel Community College, raised my family, and have continued my education online with American Intercontinental University. My passion for research and writing touches all areas of my life; family, ministry, work, and friendships. I have two book projects in progress. It is my highest hope to see both projects in print.
My greater passion is for empowering women and creating opportunities to cultivate young women to live in their divine purpose. This passion was incited in 2006 when a group of mothers and daughters met for a game night and had a conversation about the mother-daughter relationship. From that gathering, the non-profit organization that has come to be known as Diamonds and Pearls Unlimited was formed. As a founding member, I know the vision is courageous, but for every woman that Diamonds and Pearls Unlimited encourages to live a successful, fulfilled, and purposeful life, it is worth it.
