Elizabeth Susan George was born in Warren, Ohio. She is a graduate of University of California in Riverside. She also attended California State University at Fullerton, where she was awarded a master’s degree in Counseling/Psychology and an honorary doctorate of humane letters.
She began her career as an English teacher at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. Along with ten other teachers, she was eventually fired for becoming involved with union activity.
