Ellen's path to health and wellness began over a decade ago when she graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences.  Once she graduated she was eager to learn more about the power of healing through whole foods so she moved out west to Los Angeles. 


Once settled into her new city she started a yearlong internship at a wellness center where she learned about herbs, supplements and some of the many different methods in holistic healing. 


Over the next 5 years she worked in a Santa Monica health clinic alongside some of the top nutritionists in the country.  Here she furthered her knowledge of supplementation, herbs, applied kinesiology and the impact of nutrition and lifestyle changes on overall health.

In 2011 she enrolled at Yo San University and started a four year Masters Program in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which she graduated from in 2014. 


Now she is a board certified licensed acupuncturist and herbalist by the state of California and a diplomat of Oriental Medicine through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).  She is the founder of Points by Ellen and accepting new patients at her clinic in Mar Vista.
