Elhom is from San Diego, California, and came to Utah as a student at Westminster, where she earned a bachelor’s in political science.
One of the highlights of her time at the college—as a student and staff—is how excited our students are to learn. “The excitement is contagious on campus.” Elhom hopes incoming students follow the advice her advisor gave her when she was a student: “Never back away from what you believe in—it’s okay to push back.”
After work, it’s possible she’ll be home making her grandmother’s measurement-less recipe for fesenjan, an Iranian dish made of pomegranate paste, ground walnuts, and rice.
"I would bring Duct Tape. It’s so practical! You can make a house, a boat, catch food, patch up wounds, and create splints. I mean there’s nothing you can’t do with duct tape so that way I wouldn’t be stranded on the island forever."
Elhom counsels students from the following states:
Utah, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Louisiana.
