Ellen started her professional life as an engineer earning a BS Electrical Engineering degree from University of Missouri – Rolla and a MS Electronic Engineering degree from University Collage, Dublin Ireland. She spent 20+ years as a software engineer working on, among other things, FRA mandated equipment for the railroad industry and the cockpit software for the F-15 and F/A-18 aircraft. The chance to work on a website for the ACIM council came and it was to be built with Drupal. And the path was set with some major life changes along the way. In her spare time Ellen likes to read and also serves the St. Louis ACIM community as a member of ACIM council as well as maintaining the website.
