She has sung in nine countries outside the United States, as well as touring all the western states. Elaine and her family (6 children and husband) have produced fourteen albums. Elaine enjoys teaching voice lessons, which she has done for over four decades, accompanying her ward choir, writing books and performing one-woman shows with such titles as: Aging Gracefully (or Not!),They Rode With the Wind: the Pony Express and 3 Saints of Zion: Utah Pioneers.
