Ellen came to law school after teaching fifth grade in a heavily immigrant community in Tennessee, desiring to address the legal issues destabilizing her students’ lives. While at Georgetown, she interned at the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project and the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition and served as a student representative in Georgetown’s asylum clinic and Appellate Litigation Clinic. Most recently, Ellen worked on a noncitizen’s Eleventh Circuit appeal challenging the determination that his crime involves moral turpitude. Ellen will be working with CAIR Coalition to expand access to counsel for detained adults in removal proceedings in Maryland.
