ELAINE MOULDER, OWNER & CHIEF MEMORY MAKER
Brilliant Edventures’ owner Elaine Moulder has had a passion for travel and an entrepreneurial spirit since she was a youngster. With a father born in Greece who traveled the world as a merchant marine and grandparents from France and Greece, her childhood environment was very multicultural. She daydreamed of exploring the world and accepted every opportunity to get out of her backyard. However, life events took her on a path that didn’t include a lot of travel until many years later when Elaine found her first travel industry job working for a student tour operator specializing in educational and music performing tours. What a blast!
There, Elaine witnessed firsthand how powerfully group travel affects both students and adults in a very positive way. She also learned that travel is essential to a complete education.
Elaine has experience in many segments of the travel industry including three tour companies, a dinner theater, and performer promotion. She also spent five years as an association executive for SYTA (Student & Youth Travel Association) and four years as the Executive Director of the SYTA Youth Foundation.
Elaine and her husband Tim are blessed with five daughters between them. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, working with her husband, any creative process, and a delicious glass of wine.
