I've had the pleasure of working with Elana on several radio projects and each time she's delivered an exceptional performance. She's incredibly natural, she's able to provide a wide range of reads, and best of all, at least from my perspective, she's very easy to work with. Seriously, she's the anti-diva. Long story short, I'd recommend her any day of the week and twice on Sunday.Jonathan Rosman - Copywriter (Montreal, Quebec)
