Elaine Borseth, Membership Director
Growing up in Detroit fueled Elaine’s love of cars. She has traveled extensively, doing her first electric cross country trip one week after retiring in 2015 and completing a 16k mile trip last year. She loves to promote driving electric and hopes to inspire others to get involved in educating and advocating for the rapid adoption of EVs wherever she goes, whether at home or on the road.
Elaine is a past President and current Vice President of the EV Association of San Diego and has helped the chapter grow to the largest chapter in the country. She is looking forward to adding more chapters and growing membership of our current Electric Auto chapters around the world.
