After getting her degree in Communication Disorders and working in the field for 2 years, Elaine has spent the last 10 years competing her way onto 5 US Kayak teams in Freestyle, Squirt and WildWater. Elaine spends her winters in Southern Vermont snowboarding and nordic skiing and spends her Springs in her Sprinter RV traveling throughout the US and Canada on Paddling, Fishing and Skiing adventures. Summers are spent on the Eastern Shore of Lake Ontario, SUPing and fishing on the lake and throwing big tricks at nearby Hole Brothers on the Black River. Elaine’s husband of 14 years, Jeff, their rescued dog (Fife Brook) and rescued cat (Laya) all join Elaine on all of her various adventures.

  1. Hi Elaine,My name is Jose Rivera from Jukin Media, we're a video licensing/production company in Los Angeles. We help people make money off their videos. We've worked with TV shows such as Ellen Show, Jimmy Kimmel, Ridiculousness on MTV, and Crashletes on Nickelodeon. We came across this video on your Instagram, and thought it was really funny. Did you film this yourself? would love to use it in one of our FailArmy compilations, as well as license out to TV shows we work with. Would you be interested?
