Elena Hein (MPA) began working for the organization in the fall of 2020. She came to College Possible with two decades of fundraising experience, including working for nonprofits in human services, health and the arts. Elena has focused her career on advancing social justice and is excited to support educational equity in our community. As a first-generation college student, Elena understands the challenge College Possible students face in navigating the higher education system and wishes more students could have a coach to help them make it to college graduation.
Elena received her Associate in Arts from Portland Community College, a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon and her master’s in public administration with a focus on nonprofit management from Portland State University. In her free time, Elena likes to hike, make jewelry, listen to podcasts, and spend time with her nieces and nephews.
