Elana Breitenbucher

I am from St. Paul, MN and did my undergraduate degree in biology at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. 

I am a TA for the Introduction to Child Life class! 

I love to be outdoors (I lived in Colorado for a year and tried to get out hiking whenever I could!) I also love to travel, spend time with my friends and family, and listen to true crime podcasts and watch true crime documentaries! 

What I like most about the HHP graduate program, specifically the child life department is the sense of community. Emily Mozena, Bri Swope, Ken Mobily, and my cohort of child life graduate students have felt like family since the day I walked through the doors. It is so much fun getting to learn and teach beside people who are just as passionate about making positive change in the lives of children as I am!
