Sr. Operations Manager
Elana believes that our world has enough water, food, and land to sustain us and that we can create systems of distribution that are both efficient and equitable. She is excited to build sustainable sourcing and supply chains for food and agriculture businesses with a focus on distribution to under-resourced communities. Before joining the Erb Institute, Elana built supply chains and access to resources for smallholder farmers and nontraditional food entrepreneurs with One Acre Fund (Ghana, Ethiopia) and FoodLab Detroit. She also has experience working with natural-resource-focused nonprofits in Boston, Colorado and Washington, D.C. In her spare time, Elana is an avid swimmer, baker, reader and discuss-er of big ideas.
