Professor Elken joined the Business Department as the Business Programs’ Internship Coordinator in the fall of 2013. She was drawn to Eastern because  Eastern allows her to combine her teaching and coaching background with her knowledge and contacts in local business to honor God by preparing students entrusted to enter the workforce. Her position helps her pursue her passion of meeting students where they are and helping them move forward in skills and experiences to prepare and engage to meet current challenges and move forward to the next season of their lives in the workplace. She started her career in Downingtown School District, then transitioned to Tredyffrin Easttown School District. Following that she found her way to Eastern University.
