A bilingual actress who has created memorable performances on both film and TV, Elena actually started her acting career fourteen years ago in Antigua Guatemala, doing theatre as a way to balance her work as a volunteer social worker. Although Antigua is a bit off the beaten track, she was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to study with the legendary Vera Gregh, and did twelve plays in four years … so she was hooked!

Since moving to LA eight years ago to pursue an acting career, Elena has been busy with work in theatre (currently appearing in The Blank Theatre’s worldwide debut of Sukie & Sue: Their Story), independent film (Broken Hearts Club, Mamitas, El Ride) and TV roles (All My Children, Touch, Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory, Zoey 101, Brothers & Sisters).  In the midst of all this abundance, what Elena is most grateful for is Dennis, her husband of four years … and the fun they’re having renovating their Spanish style 1930 home for their two dogs, Machu and Baxter.
