Eliane is currently pursuing a degree in Justice and Peace with a minor in Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs. She has been involved with GU Politics Special Operations Team, Research Squad, and Comms Crew prior to joining the Student Advisory Board.

Eliane came to the Hilltop ready to engage those around her in proactive work to drive social change. Through her academic pursuits and service learning opportunities, she seeks to understand how to connect politics to Jesuit values. Her current interests revolve around the relation between politics, social justice, nonviolence, and peace. She is a steadfast proponent of bipartisanship solutions.

Eliane’s commitment to service has been honed in a variety of leadership roles across several organizations. She currently serves on the governing board of the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV), a coalition that focuses on addressing intimate partner violence in the state of Maryland. In this position, she works on legislation and policy that promote healthy relationships and protect the safety of Marylanders.

At Georgetown, Eliane serves on the Provost’s Diversity Advisory Committee and advises the Provost on issues related to diversity, race, ethnicity, and social Justice. She also directs the Issue of the Month for the Hoya/Homeless Outreach Programs and Education and is involved with the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service (CSJ).

Before transferring to Georgetown, she attended Prince George’s Community College, where she served as a member of the College Board of Trustees and Editor-In Chief of Reflections Magazine. Her prior internships and work experience include working at United States Senate and Pax Christi-International.

Eliane’s artistic side finds expression in cooking, writing, and knitting. If you love dogs, classical music, and astronomy, Eliane should become your best friend.
