Areas of Expertise
Outside the Office
A plant enthusiast, Elena can be found tending her small garden, identifying trees, or snacking on berries along the side of the trail. Elena is always seeking to learn more, so she loves dabbling in new crafts (recently printmaking), instruments (accordion) and finding ways to connect with her community.
