Bio

Being an avid traveler and explorer, Elyn moved from Montana to Italy at age 15 as an exchange student, traveled to Japan at 17 as student ambassador for the State of Montana, and circumnavigated the world with Semester at Sea before she was 21. Elyn took this interest of people, places and the beauty she found the world over, and distilled it into a career of business, education and mentorship gaining an MBA and a Master’s in Teaching. Her passion is being a conduit between problems and solutions, guiding people through possibilities to find the best outcome (in the most Pareto Efficient way possible).

Elyn lives aboard her 33-foot sailboat with her two daughters in the San Juan Islands in Washington State. She loves exploring the natural world, her local library, and is currently working to get her private pilot’s license. She enjoys cruising the Inside Passage and South East Alaska, and recently returned from an epic 5,000-mile road trip to the Canadian Arctic.

Background

Elyn holds an MBA in Sustainable Business from Bainbridge Graduate Institute and a Master’s in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University. Combining these two interests, Elyn became one of the only public-school teachers in Washington State certified to teach social and environmental sustainability. She believes, however, the best education is not in the classroom, and has dedicated her career to guiding people, and businesses, to finding efficiencies and alignment of right livelihood: how to create profit without compromising values or creating harm.

Elyn has sat on the boards as chair and co-chair for high impact nonprofits, as well as provided services to small businesses as a pro-bono consultant for sustainability. She believes that the more you give, the more you can receive. She is currently co-creating a non-profit to help remote indigenous youth gain access to modern watercraft such as SUP, sail and kayaks.
