Elise caught the travel bug when she was studying abroad in Jerusalem. From there she traveled Europe and the Middle East before taking positions in Los Angeles and then New York City. For the first years of her career, Elise worked in the non-profit sector as the Associate Director for a study abroad program a position that allowed her to travel for work while encouraging others to forge their own travel experiences by studying abroad.

In 2013, while working towards an MBA in Marketing, Elise began working for Tzell Travel Group and Protravel International as their Social Media and Digital Marketing Manager. She quickly fell in love with the travel industry and joined YTP-NYC to meet like-minded young professionals.

Elise is now the Social Media and Digital Marketing manager for Travel Leaders Group, Hotel Division and a recent transplant to San Diego. She is excited to bring her passion for joining young travel professionals together to the one of the hottest destinations in the US: San Diego.
