Elaina is the newest member of our team, a native New Englander coming all the way from Portland, Maine where she completed her Physician Assistant studies. Prior to moving back east for PA school, she lived in Colorado while completing her undergraduate education. Being an avid skier and having an immense passion for being in the mountains, it didn’t take long for Colorado to feel like home for Elaina. When she first visited Telluride for a ski trip in 2012, she was instantly drawn to its dramatic landscape, but even more-so the strong sense of community.
Eager to pursue a job practicing medicine in a mountain town, she joined our team at TMC during the fall of 2016 while completing her clinical rotation in internal medicine. She immediately came to appreciate the nurturing community that Telluride had to offer, and hoped to someday become a part of it.
Elaina looks forward to the opportunity of being a part of her patient’s long-term health goals in the form of progressive, holistic, and detail-oriented patient care. She holds a strong value on preventative medicine is ecstatic to help guide her patient’s to optimal wellbeing and happy, healthy lives.
When she is not seeing patients, Elaina enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, boating, and enjoying everything that Telluride has to offer.
