Personal History Born and raised in what used to be Kentucky on Earth, her family was very close-knit until her teenage years. Ella made good grades during school, and rarely got into trouble. She was quiet at first, but performing in musicals at her high school and local theatre and working at a mechanics shop brought her out of her shell. Near the end of her studies, Starfleet was recruiting at her school. Ella's interest was piqued, so she applied that fall and was accepted.

During her time at the Academy, she spent most of her time studying to keep up with the quick pace. She originally aspired to be a diplomat, but after failing her first xenoculture class, she switched to engineering. Inspired by having a Vulcan roommate, she took Vulcan language classes as an elective. While in the Academy, Ella had a romance with an energetic young man named Mahir Darzi, an aspiring stellar cartographer. They dated for nearly a year before an emotional breakup. As they were very close, she didn't completely get over him until her last year at the Academy. She graduated and was almost immediately assigned to the Endeavour.
