She currently serves as the USCA Elementary School Counselor VP Elect and has served on several USBE committees. Her contributions include creating "Having a Healthy Brain" video - a resource to help students as they returned to school after COVID-19 closures - and assisting with the direct services portion of the Elementary Implementation Guide. She enjoys sending Wellness Wednesday messages throughout her district which led to her Pursue Whole Wellness YouTube channel and The Whole Wellness Counselor Instagram and TPT pages. Elise loves connecting and collaborating with other school counselors and educators. One of her newest collaborations is co-hosting the "Starting Little, Ending Big" feature on USCA's "The Sounding Board" Podcast.

If you ask her what she enjoys doing most in the summer, it’s going for an early morning run and spending time with her family.
