Ladies and Gentlemen! Children of all ages! We introduce to you Elinor Blankenship! Originally from Kentucky, Elinor stopped clowning around long enough to finish her bachelor’s degree in music at Asbury University. Although she thought about running away to join the circus, she instead used her fun-loving personality working for YMCAs in Kentucky, Ohio, and finally Utah. Eventually, Elinor joined the Greatest Show in Utah at UAN to help afterschool professionals across the state reach astounding heights and accomplish feats of strength to provide the best quality of programming possible. She loves to help programs juggle the perfect mix of fun and learning. In her spare time, she can be found playing music, singing, or clowning around (no, really - she holds an associate’s degree in basic clown arts from TNT Clown University).
