As VPGE's Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications, Elaine develops communication and marketing strategies to expand VPGE’s reach in the graduate student community. Before joining the VPGE team in August 2016, she received her BA from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and gained marketing experience in a variety of industries in both the US and Australia. She brings to the role a love for problem solving and a passion for helping others.
Elaine enjoys learning new things, and is currently trying her hand at surfing, quilting, and HTML coding. If you can’t reach her in the office, you can probably find her enjoying the great outdoors, or doing something food-related (cooking, eating, or thinking about food).
