Elvira is the founder of Writers Inkubator (WI), a literary management company dedicated to guiding writers from idea to post-publication as well as packaging IP for the screen. WI has aided many first time writers in the process of securing book deals including Jaha Dukureh, a two time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, and Roderick Sewell, the first bilateral above-the-knee amputee to finish the IRONMAN World Championship. Current notable clients include Kaleb Canales, the NBA's first Mexican-American head coach and Leo Manzano, a former U.S. Track & Field athlete who became the first American to medal in the 1500m during the 2012 Summer Olympics since 1968.
Elvira is also the author of the upcoming memoir Hurdles in the Dark scheduled for release by Macmillan in May 2024. Her book was acquired in a 6-figure, pre-empt deal. Prior to Writers Inkubator, Elvira coached Track & Field at the University of Pennsylvania, personally coached a two-time olympic hurdler, and was the horizontal and vertical jumps private coach at The Armory, the premier indoor track & field in the United States.
As a high school athlete, Elvira was a three-time UIL Texas State Championship Qualifier in the 100m/300m hurdles and sprints. Currently, she holds the 55mH record at the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) where she studied Information Systems and International Business. As a freshman at UIW, she earned the All-Conference top performer award and qualified for the NCAA National Championships. During her sophomore year, Elvira fractured her spine and was forced to hang up her running shoes. Four years later, she made a comeback and won multiple races in the 400mH, including the USATF New Jersey State Championships. In 2019, she qualified for the 2020 USA Triathlon National Championships.
Elvira resides in Los Angeles.
