Elaine has completed 13 successful start-up companies in her career, including divisions for MCI and ICS in addition to unique industry niches. Outside of her current company, Ventures, Etc., LLC, started in 2002, she has also started three divisions for The Stronach Group in the past 10 years. Industries include government, financial, horse racing, technology, customer service and construction. Elaine’s career has spanned over 25 years, and she brings vast experience representing and operating a disparate list of organizations.
While Elaine as no military background herself, she has looked for ways to best contribute to our nation’s Veterans, “those that have given so much so that I have freedom, and freedom of fear, without personal cost.”
Simply giving to charity is a step in the right direction, but she often feels like it’s just not enough. “About four years ago I started long-distance running and have experienced many conversations with our wounded warriors, learning about their own personal challenges and their models for overcoming them. The Jonas Project is an incredible vehicle for me to use the skills and talents I have to participate in making a difference to those that have made a difference to me.”
Elaine lives in Long Beach, CA.
