Elana is passionate about helping people find love. She founded KickStartLove in 2010 when she was single and intrigued by the world of online dating. As she explored the dating scene, she focused on helping other people write strong profiles to attract high-quality matches. Her clients saw an increase in their matches, and soon they were asking for advice on how to make smart choices about partners, and create meaningful relationships in the real world. She started providing individual dating coaching, leading workshops, and writing the dating advice column, "Ask Elana." With a bachelor's degree in psychology, she decided to earn a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling to increase her understanding of human desire and companionship. Her clients were finding partners, and creating lives together, but it wasn't until she followed her own advice that she met the man who would become her husband. Today, she continues to develop products and services to help people get results in their love lives. Elana and her husband live in Lakewood, Ohio with their adorable Australian Shepherd.
