We are pleased to announce that Elena Hernandez is joining our team as a policy analyst. Elena has worked with us in various capacities over the past few years as a Research Assistant and was our 2012- 2013 Betty Jane Narver Fellow. She was also an intern at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington D.C.

 “I am so excited that our investment in new voices entering the policy area (through the Betty Jane Narver Fellowship) has resulted in helping to launch Elena’s career in public policy,” says Executive Director Remy Trupin. “She is a great addition to our team and I look forward to her many contributions to our work.”  

Prior to joining us, Elena worked for six years with a diversity outreach program at the University of Washington called the Genomics Outreach for Minorities (GenOM) Project.  She holds a B.A. in Law, Societies, & Justice from the University of Washington and will earn her Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) from the UW’s Evans School of Public Affairs in June 2014.

Elena focuses on anti-poverty policy.
