Elleen is honored and excited to serve as the National Director of Activities since JSA programs hold a special place in her heart. This year, she hopes to integrate different JSA chapters, departments, and states in impactful supplementary programming.
Elleen first stumbled into JSA through JSA Summer School at Princeton after her freshman year, not knowing a single thing about the organization. She was enchanted by the spirited environment created by diverse, open-minded individuals and immediately joined her small school chapter the following school year. She served as a Texas Expansion Agent her sophomore year and as the Texas Director of Summer Schools her junior year. Elleen is a Montezuma Leadership Summit alumna and anticipates serving as her school Chapter President a second year. At this point, JSA is a de facto part of Elleen’s lifestyle and identity. She is incredibly thankful for the JSA summer program that started it all.
Outside of JSA, Elleen is a Texas All-State violinist and is working on a volunteering program to support isolated senior citizens. In her free time, Elleen loves to investigate skincare, learn new guitar chords, draw, and explore her neighborhood on long walks with her dog.
