About Saran Traore

Saran Traore Headshot

Saran Traore, MBA, MSM, CEC

Saran is from Columbia, Maryland where she attended Townson University for a Bachelor’s degree in political science and international studies. She later went on to the University of Maryland Global Campus for her Master’s Degree in management, public relations, advertising, and applied communication. Shortly after, she attended Saint Joseph’s University to finish her education achieving her Masters of Business Administration in Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Marketing.

She began her career in corporate. As she continued through several positions in the healthcare industry, she discovered a need for emotional intelligence education. Saran felt stuck in these positions, as she pushed her way to break through to her goals. She felt a lack of resources and support for those who felt the same. This prompted the idea of Elev8, a leadership consulting solution, for those who felt stuck.
