Elena has been with MASON since 2015.
Elena fell in love with historic buildings while studying Architecture at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and brought that love home when she returned to Hawaii for graduate school. She enjoys working on projects that bring new life to existing buildings, allowing them to continue serving their inhabitants. These projects have included a variety of project types from single-family homes to offices and commercial spaces.
Elena was a robotics and science geek in high school and preserves this love by volunteering at robotics and science events for kids. When she is not volunteering she enjoys working on craft projects on the weekends.
