Love What You Do, Do What You Love

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

My name is Elena and I currently reside in the suburbs of Seattle, WA. I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area of California and was raised in a very close and active family of five.

I spent most of my school vacation time camping in national parks throughout the American southwest and backpacking in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

I am a wife, a mother, a teacher and a student. When I started my journey, never in my wildest dreams, did I ever imagine that it would lead to where I am today.
