Elena recently joined the Save the Sound team in our New York office. The bulk of her work will be on the Unified Water Study, bacteria-monitoring program, Long Island Sound Report Card and supporting the growing network of participating groups around the Sound.

Elena grew up in Pennsylvania and graduated with a B.A. in Anthropology from Temple University. She went on to work as staff scientist for The Patrick Center for Environmental Research at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia, where she monitored sites across the Delaware River basin and worked with the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary in conducting freshwater mussel surveys.

When she’s not on the water, Elena loves hiking with her dog.
