Ms. Elad is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with her Master of Science in Nursing from Ohio University where she graduated with honors. She also obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Akron. Prior to becoming a Nurse Practitioner, she worked as a Registered Nurse for over seven years in different disciplines to include but not limited to psychiatric, neuro, cardiac, and surgical intensive care units.

While working in psychiatric units she developed more compassion and empathy for her patients suffering from mental health problems as she understood their concerns and how they were perceived by friends, family, and society. As a result, she decided to further her career in psychiatry to mitigate mental health stigmas. She believes in providing quality care based on research-proven practices. She treats mental health disorders across the lifespan in a culturally sensitive environment incorporating psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy.

She is also preceptor for graduate nursing students for psychiatric clinical rotations. During her spare time, she loves to travel and spend quality time with family and friends.
