Ella Pearl spent her younger years growing up in West Point, Mississippi with her large and loving family. She moved on to Kansas City, Missouri in her 20’s. There she spent time working in Cosmetology, Nursing, and as a Preschool Teacher, which she loved because she enjoyed spending time with the children.
