Meet Elaine Turley

Elaine joined the E CITY staff at the end of August 2004, as Creative Writer and Director of Volunteers.  However, she is not new to E CITY- she had been doing most of E CITY’s grant proposal and newsletter writing behind the scenes since its beginning.

Elaine spent seven years working as the Volunteer Coordinator at the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.  Prior to finding her passion in the nonprofit sector, she worked as a legal

assistant and patent agent for Jones,  Day, Reavis & Pogue, and also  spent several years in chemical research at The Lubrizol Corp.  She holds a B.A. in chemistry from The College of Wooster.

Elaine is taking an increasing role in fundraising for E CITY and hopes to find more corporate partners who will “adopt” particular programs and provide all the funding and the needed volunteers to help our students prepare for their culminating business plan presentations.  There is no business background in Elaine’s resume, but she has served as a student “coach” herself, and found it to be very rewarding Elaine, Peg, Scott in NYC after the Banquet.
Elaine is pleased to be a part of this energetic and committed staff, and is as excited as the students themselves, to be in the “can do” environment of E CITY.  She most enjoys helping nonprofits promote and celebrate their good work through her love of writing, and sees much to be celebrated here.
