Following her graduation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in broadcast journalism, Elaine started a career in healthcare marketing and communications with Atrium Health (formerly Carolinas Healthcare System). After serving 10 years in Atrium’s marketing department she spent the next 22 years as a physician recruiter, helping to bring top-notch medical care- in a variety of medical specialties - closer to home. Elaine has been a longtime board member of the Carolinas Association of Provider Services (CAPS) and also served as president of the group. A volunteer in Charlotte’s Greek community, Elaine served as a Philoptochos (friend of the poor) board member at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral and as a board member and officer of the Daughters of Penelope.
Where were you born and where did you grow up? I am a very proud native Charlottean!
Favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? You can find me out with friends and family listening to live music or attending one of the many festivals and cultural events our great city has to offer. I am a huge sports fan and I never miss the opportunity to watch my UNC Tar Heels play football and basketball. Carolina Panthers football is a must as well! I also love to travel.
What excites you about your work at The Ivey and the contribution you make here? I am so grateful to be a part of a team of such devoted, caring and talented individuals. Each day the staff at The Ivey amazes me with the exceptional care and love they provide our members and their families. It is heartwarming to see all the smiling faces of our members as they engage in all of the wonderful activities in such a lovely place. They are so happy to be here, and their families are confident in the care they receive. They inspire me on a daily basis – not only to do my best as a teammate but in my personal life as well.
