Elane began imagining a parent support and education network when her first child was born at home and she asked herself “Wow!  What do I do now?” 

With experiences in marketing, media, education, community, and parenting, she created a powerful guide, something new parents could follow from the time a baby is born until ready to be on their own in the world.  It is her vision and genesis that became Raising Families. It is her unique combination of expertise that allows Raising Families to help parents become more joyful and confident as well as more proactive and intentional family leaders.

Elane currently resides in Alpine, Texas with husband and fellow Raising Families co-founder Rick Stephens.
