Born in Washington, DC and raised in the Maryland suburbs, Elena is the youngest in her family's first American-born generation. Her parents, from South America are whom she credits today for being bi-lingual in Spanish and English. She loves her cultural Hispanic roots and shows them off by still dancing Salsa and Tango every chance she gets! By her early 20's, she hosted the Emmy Award winning show "Diver(C)ity" filmed in the DC metropolitan area before making her way to Los Angeles. Elena's diverse and urban vibe contributed to her quick success soon after arriving in Hollywood. Her face could be seen in several national commercials, print ads and TV shows. By 2003, she had become one of the sexy "Kande Girls" on BET's "The Way We Do It" and landed roles on "Judging Amy", "Bold and the Beautiful" and "Half & Half". She's a natural beauty and has a winning personality to match her talents as a fiery Latina actress, which is still consistently evident in her expanding work.
