Elan is a multimedia artist and educator. Her path has taken her from cross-cultural natural resource management projects in Jordan to advocating for LGBTQ homeless individuals in Silicon Valley, to studying the potential uses of VR for mental health interventions, to starting her own mindful tutoring business, Lavender Learn. Through these experiences, Elan honed her values of imagination, communication, and playfulness. She came to mindfulness in college after observing the effects of chronic stress on herself and her peers at Cornell. She is excited to work with Vivensity to help students manage stress, learn communication skills, and cultivate joy.
