Elana has spent four years with the George Lucas Educational Foundation, otherwise known as Edutopia, leading social media and online marketing strategies. But don’t let the word leading fool you; she’s also the one every day on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and so many more spaces. As a result, she’s particularly fond of giant cappuccinos and chocolate-covered espresso beans … zoom! Elana blogs occasionally for Edutopia, and she’s an organizer for EdCampSFBay. Elana graduated summa cum laude from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a BA in international business and small business management. She's also racked up almost 10 years of experience in online and social media marketing -- fueled by a particular passion for education, nonprofits, and corporate philanthropy.
