Elin Hawkinson, Communications Manager
Elin joined the BRYC team in June 2020 as our ACT learning manager, supporting BRYC’s Junior and Senior Fellows on their journey to an improved ACT score. In summer 2021, Elin happily took on a permanently remote role as BRYC’s communications manager.
Originally from Minnesota, Elin spent several years in New York City working in educational theatre before earning a B.F.A. in creative writing from The New School. She taught English as a second language in Kobe, Japan, then returned to the States in 2014 to pursue an M.F.A. in creative writing at Eastern Washington University. After leaving Washington in 2016, she promoted access to higher education through communications roles at the University at Buffalo (NY), where she proudly led an initiative to rewrite and rebrand the UB College of Arts and Sciences’ 70+ websites, and the LSU Foundation, where she wrote solicitations, web copy, case statements, and proposals and contributed dozens of articles to Cornerstone magazine. Elin, her partner Sacha, and her cat Charley will return to MN in August 2021 to be nearer family.
