My name is Elise, and I help businesses, organizations, and individuals raise critical funds to further their mission and goals. I am a development and event professional who has dedicated my career to social and environmental justice, driven by the belief that each individual can make a positive impact on the world.

Here you will be able to follow my journey as a 30-something negotiating my career in the nonprofit sphere,  find fundraising and event planning resources, or learn how we can collaborate on your project - along with some wedding planning tips, road trip guides, and Southern California hike recommendations. Thanks for being here!
