Hometown: Minneapolis, MN
Elana Vlodaver studied musical theater and vocal performance throughout high school and her time at Bowdoin College but fell off the wagon in pursuit of some science degrees. She went to UPenn for veterinary school, but was saddened to learn that cows do not care for improvised musical numbers during their rectal exams. In a desperate whim to revive the right-side of her brain, she studied improv at the Philly Improv Theater. The science thing brought her to SoCal and ImprovCity, where she found community, laughter, and great snacks. Elana can be found at the dog beach or biking around with her soul dog, Bentley aka Bento Box aka Bentato aka Bug aka West Philly Special.
