Elana Stone arrived at Cate with more than ten years of experience in program management and youth organizing, with an emphasis on education as well as LGBT, racial, and economic equity. Elana is a recent transplant to Ventura after completing their master's in public administration at the University of Washington in Seattle. Having had the experience working for their alma mater, Whitman College, Elana was eager to join a place like Cate, where students, staff, and faculty create an exceptional student-centered community. When not on the Mesa, Elana can be found renovating their warehouse in Ventura, experimenting with gardening, and exploring the outdoors with their partner, Amy.
