Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Elise landed in Melbourne as a backpacker almost two years ago and is enjoying the laid back lifestyle here.
Elise began her career running an organization that provides leadership development, educational, social, and cultural programs for university students.
She has a Bachelors Degree double majoring in psychology and religion, a Masters Degree in religion and training in Experiential Education.
Elise is currently loving her role as the Community Development Manager at deskworx, a coworking space in St Kilda. She enjoys the ability to bring her community building and event management skills into this space. She also does freelance writing and project management.
When Elise is not building the perfect coworking space, she enjoys taking advantage of the Australian weather and spending time relaxing at the beach and hiking through the beautiful Victorian rainforests.
