Jett's Nurse (formerly)
(1500 Market Street)
Genoa City, Wisconsin
Elena Dawson is a resident of Genoa City, currently played by General Hospital Alumni Brytini Sarpy since 2019.
Elena first appeared when she opened the door to Devon Hamilton when he followed his sister, Ana Hamilton, to a motel. After initially slamming the door in his face, the young woman was later revealed to be the nurse to Jett Slade, a former R&B musician who also happens to be Ana’s father. Devon invited her and Jett to move into the penthouse with him and Ana so she could be with her father. Elena was uncomfortable with the situation and insisted she wasn't looking for a handout, but agreed. Elena found herself drawn to Devon, but he overstepped again when he paid off her student loans.
Elena and Devon's relationship got off to a rocky start, in no small part because he was still haunted by the death of his wife, Hilary Curtis. But the couple grew closer and she was there for him when his father, Neil Winters, passed away. Elena also befriended Nate Hastings, and off his suggestion, interviewed and got a job as a new resident at the hospital.
Elena and Nate later started their own clinic together, but Amanda Sinclair arrived in town. Amanda looked exactly like Hilary, and Elena didn't like or trust her especially when she stayed town since she believed Amanda was bringing up painful memories for Devon. Nate also took a liking to Amanda and started dating her.
Things only got worse when Amanda found out that she was Hilary's twin sister and started hanging around Devon more asking for more information about Hilary. Elena didn't like Amanda being around Devon constantly.
- Elena is a Libra.
- Her favourite novel is "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison. Devon gave it to Elena as a gift. (July 31st, 2019)
