Ellen Richman Muhammad

alisa genoveseEllen Richman Muhammad is a administrative specialist and project manager with deep roots in graphic communications, most of those years spent in print publishing. A few years ago she transitioned from managing products to coordinating employment and training services for low-income seniors at the City of Oakland. There she headed a digital literacy program, and became sharply aware of the detrimental impact on those on the wrong side of the Digital Divide.

An East Coast transplant, Ellen has been an East Oakland resident for many years. For over 35 years, she’s been married to an African-American Muslim man, and is the proud parent of a daughter with a Hebrew first name and Arabic last name. For Ellen, diversity is a way of life, and working at StirFry Seminars is the perfect way to fuse her personal life choices with her work.

Ellen has a BFA in Fine Arts from the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, and a Certificate in Project Management from California State University East Bay. She enjoys using both her creative and analytical sides, and loves working with font and color palettes as much as with numbers on a spreadsheet. She also loves felines and fitness.
