Her six published books about children with special needs include: Dancing Luna, a story about dyslexia; I am Unique, a story about cerebral palsy; Goodbye Long Hair, a story about leukemia cancer; and two stories about autism: How Emily and Eli Became Friends and The Beauty in Me; and ABC Now I Know Common Disabilities. Her first Latino topic book is called A New Life in America, a story about a boy who migrated to the United States with his father from Honduras. All the stories are based on true stories. Elsie is also a contributing author in the book called Today’s Inspired Latina. Elsie’s goal with all her books is to spread awareness and promote inclusion.

She is an entrepreneur, a women + girls empowerment champion, and a nonprofit strategist. She has a Master's Degree in Nonprofit Management and a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. 

Alejandra Santaolalla lives with her partner in Arlington and regularly  commutes back and forth between Arlington and DC. When she's not exploring either city, she loves re-watching Harry Potter movies, scrolling through Instagram for corgi pictures, and drinking copious amounts of tea (not necessarily in that order).
