But perhaps most importantly she is the sister you probably never had!
At an early age, Ella had the unique opportunity to be a confidant and support system for many people. With wisdom, humor, and openness passed down to her from her bisexual grandma, Ella received a rich education. In 2000 at UC Santa Cruz she began The I Want Sex Club (I.W.S.C.) for students who wanted to talk about sex in a non-judgmental, supportive forum. Shortly thereafter, she graduated with a Sociology B.A. from UCLA, and then went on to teach comprehensive sexual health education to high school classrooms throughout Los Angeles Unified School District. An advocate of wellness, Ella is a certified yoga teacher, has attended countless seminars in personal development, whole food nutrition and continues to travel the globe taking in wisdom from teachers, midwives, shamans and storytellers.
Through one-on-one coaching, workshops and her weekly posts, she provides the safety and straight-up-ness for people to become empowered emotionally to live a happier, more connected, joyful life. It’s her greatest passion to be of service and offer you the tools, understanding and support to check in and be with what you really are – ridiculously awesome and alive.
And, although Ella is all about the feminine community and supporting her sisters, she is a sister to the men out there on occasion, too. Don’t be afraid to go ask Ella and get support with your relationships.
Be you male, female, single, married, divorced, pregnant, bisexual, celibate, mother, father, sister, brother, grandma… Ella’s your go-to gal for open-hearted and minded support.
