We are delighted to have Ileana Elias on our staff at the GRACE Community Clinic as the Front Office Assistant. As the face of the Clinic, Ileana not only greets incoming patients as their first touch point, she manages all scheduling, administrative roles and assists with clinical care coordination.

After receiving a degree in Psychology from La Salle Cancun University, Ileana used her passions to counsel young children at the local elementary school. She and her husband returned to the states, where she achieved her Masters of Arts of Human Resources from Webster University in El Paso, TX.

According to Ileana, it was her nonprofit internship upon returning that gave her a heart for family advocacy and holistic care. Ileana’s breadth of knowledge in office management, child advocacy and the Spanish language make her a huge asset to GRACE.

“Ileana has not been with us but a short period of time but it did not take her long to settle in and embrace the GRACE mission, said Nurse Manager Shirley Roberts, “She is quick to put everyone at ease with her big smile, warm welcome and servant heart. We are truly blessed to have her join our GRACE team!”

On behalf of the GRACE family, welcome to the team Ileana!
