Director of Development, Marketing and Communications
Creative. Ambitious. Crafty.
Elise loves that her primary role at the Corps is sharing our great stories with the world, whether it be charitable foundations, donors, alumni, or the public. She oversees all fundraising activities to ensure that we have adequate resources to support the incredible work we do every day. She also manages our marketing and communications, working to increase public awareness of the Corps and further engage alumni, staff, parents, and friends.
While relatively new to the Corps, Elise has a long history of working with non-profits and youth development organizations. She has spent the past 11 years serving in development and marketing positions for a variety of organizations including Arizona State University, Seattle University, Sojourner Center, and Camp Lutherwood Association.
An Oregon native, Elise recently relocated to Minnesota with her husband, Bjorn, and their two dogs. She loves spending time outside, creating something out of nothing, and documenting the beauty of the world around her. She’s also eagerly anticipating her next big challenge as she prepares to welcome a son later this year.
