Eliana grew up a nomad, going to 13 different schools along with living in several different countries including Chile and New Zealand. Perpetually being the "new girl" sparked a lifelong passion for studying people. Her diverse look comes from her immigrant Chilean father while her mother is of Native American and Eastern European descent. Her athletic abilities have taken her to run marathons, train with an Olympic level boxing coach, and cycle at an advanced level. She also enjoys the art of live storytelling and was recently featured on The Moth podcast.
