Elana is an operations and administrative professional with a passion for fostering connection, creativity, and growth within communities. "Joining Beezwax gave me an opportunity to learn, grow, and to support a framework of connectivity and success," she says.
Her career in business and administrative operations developed and flourished during her 10 years at UC Davis and UC Berkeley. She also spent 2.5 years in the Dominican Republic as a Peace Corps Community Health Volunteer, following her passion for uplifting and empowering underrepresented and underserved communities.
When not collaborating with her fellow Beez, Elana can often be found hiking with her dog Xena, making gluten-free treats, attempting yoga, painting and crafting, being absorbed in sci-fi or fantasy books, traveling, and general adventuring with family and friends. She is passionate about diversity and inclusion, as well as accessible and accurate sexual health education, advocating for these causes when and how she can.
