About Ellen

I’ve been a pro-life activist in New Hampshire for more than thirty years, doing everything from community volunteering to professional advocacy at the State House, with political campaign work thrown in here and there. I’m Catholic, tenacious, and a proud Granite Stater. I’m a writer, public speaker, and hiker, not necessarily in that order.



I took Pope Francis seriously when he said “…Do I, a Catholic, watch from the balcony? You can’t watch from the balcony! Get involved! Give it your best.”

And so I try.

I hope you’ll check out my other blogs, too.

  • Leaven for the Loaf: Since 2012, I’ve been writing at Leaven for the Loaf  about pro-life issues in my home state of New Hampshire.
  • Granite State Walker: Join me at Granite State Walker, where I’ve been writing since 2006 about my favorite trails in southern New Hampshire.
