Elena was born and raised in Germany until 1998 when her family moved to Cullman, Alabama. She graduated from Cullman High School in 2005 and moved back to Germany that summer. She was an Au Pair in France for a year before she went to nursing school and received her pediatric nursing degree. Elena moved to Gillette in 2011 and has been working at the Recreation Center. Although her family lives in Germany, Gillette is her home. Elena is very excited about the children’s ministry and being part of the New Life family.
