I am a Geospatial Analyst and contractor for the EPA in Center City. I provide spatial analysis, data management, and cartography support to scientists in Water Protection, Hazardous Site Clean-up, Land and Chemicals, and Environmental Assessment Divisions. When I am not at work, I tend to be outside....either with my dog at the dogpark or Wissahickon or running. I am a distance runner and sometimes bike, hike and rock climb as well. Other hobbies: watching hockey and drinking well-crafted beer.

Tell us about your favorite outdoor adventure?

Difficult choice. Experiencing my first 14000' peak in Colorado after growing up hiking on the east coast. Summiting Mt. Rainier. Scuba diving for my first time in Belize and seeing the edge of the continental shelf!


My name is Elena. My job brought me to Philadelphia a year ago. I am very active and outdoors-oriented and am looking for like-minded people to hike, climb, and have adventures with.
