Elaine started her adventure as the Outreach Director in September 2013. Prior to joining the Farm Safety For Just Kids team she worked at the Stelter Company assisting nonprofits across the US with online gift planning marketing.

Elaine grew up on a small farm in Springville, IA. In her spare time she enjoys getting into trouble with home improvement projects, hanging out with her furry “son” (Corgi/Lab mix dog) Nugget, cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes and exploring Des Moines with her husband, enjoying all it has to offer.
