My name is Elleka Yost, and I am ASBO International's Government Affairs & Communications Coordinator. I manage ASBO International’s legislative and advocacy programs, curate content for our School Business Leader leadership newsletter, and create a variety of toolkits, PowerPoints, and other communication materials for the association.
I love research and am a lifelong learner! I've studied political science, international affairs, and public policy with a focus on U.S.-Asian relations for more than ten years, and became interested in nonprofit management, education, and international development while attending George Mason University. I speak Mandarin Chinese, lived in Beijing for a year, and have a background in research, journalism, international affairs, and education. In my spare time, I enjoy reading news, debating politics, and playing strategy games to keep my mind sharp.
