Despite her academic struggles, low self-esteem, and battle with an eating disorder, Elaine Howard eventually achieved her goal to be an attorney. Instead of celebrating her accomplishment, however, Elaine continued to question her self-worth as she focused on negativity. Then, in 2005, Elaine inadvertently discovered her passion for paleontology, and her life was never the same. She has since become certified in fossil lab and fieldwork by the Wyoming Dinosaur Center, participated in numerous dinosaur digs, and made friends from all over the world.
Most recently, Elaine has joined filmmakers (father and son team Tony and James Pinto) as executive producer of their upcoming documentary, Why Dinosaurs? As a certified-coach, she is also on a mission to encourage others to find their own unique passion and allow it to transform their lives into an exciting adventure.
