Elise is a Senior Manager in Audit Services for a large public accounting firm serving large non-profits and mid-market technology and consumer products companies. Her passion for theatre was sparked early on when her parents produced children's theatre in the Bay Area, and has continued as she supports the paths of her mom and sisters, who have continued in the business of delivering excellent storytelling on stage and through audio books in their respective career paths. While Elise took the corporate route professionally, her love of great and interesting theatre is deeply rooted, hence the intrigue of Anonymous Theatre. She met her husband, Andy, at Santa Clara University and in 2017 made the move back to Portland to be close to his family. They have a young daughter, Hailey, and the sweetest dog, a corgidor named Calvin. Elise loves cooking and craft beer, hikes and neighborhood walks with the family, and finding peace and strength in the barre3 studio as often as possible.
