Elin was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After moving to Santa Barbara to go to college, Elin married and moved to Ojai to raise a family. When her youngest son started preschool, Elin started working part time at OVAC so she could swim with the Ojai Masters. She loves being part of the team at OVAC, encouraging kids and adults to achieve goals through swimming, have fun in the water and make friends. Elin enjoys swimming with the Ojai Masters, surfing, mountain biking, spending time with her husband, Josh, and being “mom” to her two kids Celeste and Blaize. Her favorite things about OVAC are the family friendly environment, positive atmosphere and social connections.
