Jacqueline of All Trades

From our developers and designers to the directors, Elia Albarran leads the team as an accomplished operations expert with an acute eye for company culture and the ability to keep the organization running smoothly. After close to a decade of running her own creative businesses, Elia has now brought her finesse and creativity to operations at Four Kitchens for the past four years. Her experience and work ethic allow her to engage every level of the business, guiding our best practices in HR and business administration. Elia isn’t afraid to challenge ideas and opinions, with the ultimate goal of arriving at the best solution. Over her career, she has cultivated a deep commitment to creating meaningful work culture, which she is delighted to put into practice as Chief Operating Officer at Four Kitchens.

Based in Austin, TX, Elia enjoys the finer things in life, like freshly made tortillas and a fizzy Topo Chico, and spends most days spoiling her Chihuahua-Dachshund, Evie June. She drinks her coffee black.
