Elena works to translate on-farm dairy practices and nutrition science to the consumer audience through a variety of outlets. With a passion for agriculture and storytelling, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Education from Michigan State University. As a lifelong Michigander and dairy enthusiast, Elena can’t imagine a better combination than fried cheese curds dipped in buttermilk ranch – preferably enjoyed at her local county fair!
