Elena Seymana Nourrie (Hopi, Cherokee and Chicana) was born and raised on traditional Tongva territory. She has served in several professional roles in the local Native American community with emphasis in community engagement, education, and wellness. Elena has a deep personal commitment to decolonizing education and fostering a sense of belonging for Native American students. As part of her wellness routine, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her toddler and two dogs as well as beading and weight training. Her favorite part about being at Pitzer is working alongside the full CEC team where humor, authenticity, intentionality, and love for community drive daily actions. She has several favorite memories working at Pitzer — from her first day when the CEC team welcomed her with a PZ planter, beautiful cake, and full spread of lunch, to watching her dog Lani develop a love for Ari’s son BeanZ!, to meeting so many incredible students with a creative, critical lens and love for community.
