Elena Diane



Erie, PA

Summary Five years of successful civic, retail, event coordination, community development, social media management, and international working and teaching experience. Available for an opportunity where I can utilize my strengths and talents to support an established organization and to grow within and upward.



Constituency Organizer & Political Director

Andre Horton’s 2020 PA State Senate Campaign • Erie, Pennsylvania 11/2019 - 06/2020

As a political director for the campaign I worked with specific constituency groups to organize their involvement with the campaign, for example – laborers, seniors, educators, veterans, communities of color, new Americans, environmentalists, and college students, etc. I utilized my community outreach skills, which include good communication and social media competency, to develop a voter contact plan in coordination with the field director for particular communities by building relationships with the existing organizations that represent said communities. My assignments, projects and overall experience working with diverse constituencies strengthened my commitment to advocacy and expanding the intended base. Running campaign team meetings, strategizing, writing, and posting content on social media as an admin, attending events curated for the community, writing emails sent to the campaign mailing list, frequenting political affairs, and participating in private senior level forums reaffirmed the fundamental position I played, aside from incalculable affirmations received from the team, campaign manager, and the candidate, Andre Horton. While working on the campaign, my experience fortified my social media skills, deepened my understanding of the issues of equity or inequity, and the differential effects based on race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc., that compound experience expanded my willingness to collaborate and be more forthcoming with ideas, and served as a catalyst for my facilitating, researching, and contributing to conversations on sometimes uneasy, but salient issues. Community Development Coordinator

Aetna Better Health

09/2019 - 03/2020

Working at Aetna I successfully manage community outreach in 17 counties and 20 cities in Northwestern Pennsylvania. I continue to create deeply rooted partnerships, adding to the over 40 organizations and agencies I work with directly. I collaborate to create programs that are more efficient, reach larger quantities of people, and affect multiple social determinants of health and measures that are specified by the state. Working one on one with supervisors and directors to produce noteworthy outcomes to project assignments has prepared me for a larger scope of work.
