If you live on the east side of Los Angeles and you have children, you’ve probably encountered “Miss Ellen” in some way, shape or form. But Ellen is not only a beloved baby and toddler music teacher in the neighborhood. She has had a multifaceted career as a TV producer, a show creator, a local kindie-rock star, an early childhood music specialist, a Torah school educator, a music school director, a curriculum creator, a liturgical singer, and an event planner. Working for Nefesh is a dream come true, nourishing her body, mind, and soul. She lives in Mount Washington with her husband, three teenage sons, and two cats.
