Ellen Hubbard

Director of Donor Relations

Ellen Hubbard joined Pacific Legal Foundation in August 2017 as a donor relations officer.

After growing up in Minnesota and graduating from college in Oregon, Ellen worked as a television news anchor and reporter in Idaho and SW Florida.  Realizing that earning minimum wage for a living wasn’t going to cut it, she enrolled in and eventually graduated from law school at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock alongside her husband, Jim, a native Arkansan.

Wanting to be a part of the liberty movement, Ellen and her husband founded American Film Renaissance, a non-profit aimed at promoting films and filmmakers celebrating conservative and libertarian values through popular culture and digital media.  She has been a frequent and requested interviewee in the media (CNN, Fox News, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, etc.) and speaker at events hosted by organizations including Club for Growth, Council for National Policy, and CPAC.

Before joining PLF, Ellen was a major gift fundraiser for The Heritage Foundation, based in Washington, D.C., and as a licensed Texas attorney, practiced as a civil litigator in Dallas.  She lives in Sparks, Nevada and enjoys running (Lake Tahoe Marathon, Twin Cities Marathon), hiking and exotic foreign travel.
