Ellen and her family began their journey into the world of foster care in 2013 when they became a licensed foster home. They have since developed a passion for supporting and encouraging fellow foster parents, biological families, and the vulnerable children at the center of it all.
Ellen helped launch Foster Village in 2016 and continues to pour her heart, time, and energy into our mission. Ellen has a degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University, teaching certification, and professional experience in the field of Early Childhood Intervention and Special Education.
Ellen is trained in trauma-informed care of children who have adverse childhood experiences and continues to provide respite care to multiples foster families on an ongoing basis while keeping things running smoothly at our Oak Haven resource center.
