After graduation from Cornell University with a BS and MEng in Operations Research, Elana Duffy (Lana) worked for a year in civil engineering before enlisting in the Army as an Intelligence Collector, Interrogator, and Counterintelligence investigator. During her 10 years of active service, she was assigned around the world including deployments to both OEF and OIF. After a roadside bomb and several surgeries, she was ultimately awarded a Purple Heart and medically retired in 2012. She then returned to NYC to build www.pathfinder.vet – assisting fellow Veterans and Families reintegrating after service through giving them the ability to share their experiences with local support resources – and providing resources with the artificial intelligence-generated information and analysis they need to continue improving their programs and communities.
