Elena DeFrancesco

Director of Outreach

As the Director of Outreach, Elena serves as the first point of contact for professionals in the Seattle area. From Fusion Student to now administrator, Elena truly knows the impact our unique program can have on a student.

Elena has always possessed a strong passion for giving back and helping others. She earned a B.A. in Communication Studies at California State University San Marcos. While there, she was drawn to a program which offered the opportunity to be connected to students within the community and provide much needed mentorship as a way to assist these young adolescents in achieving their goals. It was through CSUSM and her collaboration with a local high school that Elena began her journey towards becoming an exemplary example of what a mentor of young teens should be; so much so that she received two consecutive community service awards!

Elena enjoys spending time with her husband and two young boys in their little cottage by the sea!
