Ellen Reed has spent most of her career providing legal aid to low-income people in King County as a paralegal and program coordinator with the Neighborhood Legal Clinics, the Housing Justice Project, and the Washington State Bar Association. She was appointed to the the original Limited License Legal Technician Board and later was the Limited License Legal Technician Program Lead. As Ellen worked on innovative regulatory solutions to the access to justice crisis, she began studying the ways technology could help connect people to legal services. She is currently starting an organization that focuses on building custom technology for legal aid programs called inForm Legal Tech and completing a master's in the Human-Centered Design and Engineering program at the University of Washington's School of Engineering. Ellen is a member of the Access to Justice Board's Technology Committee, volunteers with Kids in Need of Defense as an assistant coordinator for their Accompaniment program, and is working with community organizations and a partner at the University of Washington to create interactive visualization tools for people navigating the domestic violence protection order process.
