About Ellen Press

Wise and Quirky storyteller Ellen Press started telling tales with her fingers on a keyboard with over two decades as an author writing children’s curriculum in literacy, science, and children’s stories but quickly realized she also loved bringing stories to life as a professional storyteller before live audiences. So, it was a natural and easy progression to also take listeners on new journeys with her voice in front of a microphone.
