Elise witnessed first-hand the evolution of Southwest Florida's real estate market and the development of new communities as she was growing up in Naples. She spent weekends as a teenager attending Open Houses and exploring construction sites in and around the area. Following high school, she left Naples for Atlanta to attend Emory University and complete her graduate studies at Georgia State University. She worked in the wireless telecommunications industry there in various marketing and sales operations roles until leaving corporate life to purchase and manage a veterinary hospital for 8 years in Colorado.
In 2016, Elise followed her heart "home" to Naples where she combines her extensive experience in business management, marketing and sales operations with her love for real estate as a Realtor and licensed personal assistant to Lynne Hancock. Elise fills her free time with workouts at Orangetheory Fitness, as a volunteer for Xcel 2 Fitness, and as a mom to her son and four furry family members.
