Elana Gross is a petite and energetic bundle of  smiles. Born and raised in NYC she lacks the New Yorker pessimism and harshness that often accompanies someone who has spent their life in the urban jungle. In fact, she’s quite the opposite. Elana is the ultimate cheerleader to her peers and never before have I met someone so quietly influential. Through her cunning writing and informative posts on her blog, Elana Lyn, she has become the authority for college and newly graduated women. Elana inspires her readers to challenge themselves by offering articles on career growth, recommendations on how to  live a healthier life and inspirational profiles on women in their careers.

Elana has been a friend, mentor and advocate of Six Degrees Society since day one! She has been loyal at spreading the word and helping grow our tight knit little community. When she isn’t curating content on her blog you can find Elana working a full-time job, trying out new work out classes or hanging out in Central Park.
