Ethel graduated from Chester High School and she relocated to New York City in 1952. Ethel had a strong passion for children which lead her to begin her career with NYC Board of Education. After retiring from the Board of Education she displayed her true entrepreneurial spirit and started many small business endeavors including her famous Icey's.
