Elaine came to RIPR in April 2017 as an avid public radio listener. Originally from Connecticut, she moved with her family to West Warwick, RI in her early teens and has stayed within the state for most of her adult life. Her varied experience includes executive support, fund development, marketing, and database management in both for profit and not for profit settings. She is thrilled to be part of the role that RIPR plays in our local communities by encouraging deeper thought and engagement around the issues we face.
