Who is Elise?

Wow, what a loaded question...


I'm a Spiritual Intuitive, Certified Peer Support Worker, Wife, Mom, Business Owner and overall Chingona.

Another important thing to know about me: I have a dry sense of humor that will inevitably make you blush or roll your eyes, and I’ve done some shady shit in order to have a wicked story to tell.

I've been and Intuitive and an Empath my entire life, and come from a line of traditional healers but it took me years to find my path.  I love to use these gifts to help my clients tap into their potential, helping to identify barriers, worries or overwhelm and my forte is working with non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs using my experience in non-profit leadership and as a successful entrepreneur.

I love to see eyes light up when passion is uncovered and know that hope can move mountains.  

I'd be honored to sit with you and your team to discuss innovative ways to change old process.

I'd be excited to offer a keynote  on authenticity originating from A Spark of Rebellion for community organizers, executive leadership, universities.

It hasn't been easy, but it's been worth it.


I’ve been overwhelmed, addicted, burnt out and depressed, all with anxiety that would put a trembling chihuahua to shame. But guess what? I came out with some scars, but also plenty of lessons and faith in myself and I use this lived experience to help you through life's hurdles.

I believe that we all have something to give, and by developing strategy and confidence, we can find success. However, doing it alone isn’t half as fun as walking out of the fog with a sister by your side, brushing off the dirt and laughing at the lessons learned.

I love the journey and would consider myself blessed to walk alongside you into the murky and dark unknown. This is my high: entering the abyss, then running out the other end screaming about the amazing adventure, waving a hand-drawn map of quicksand and shortcuts. 

I live in the Land of Enchantment with a calendar-worthy firefighter, two feisty daughters, a pup, a cat and 4 chickens. The firefighter is mine, but I’m willing to part with the chickens…

"Elise has served as a mentor to me and has continued to be an inspiration to myself and many others. She not only has the knowledge and credentials that keep her at the top tier as a leadership professional, but more importantly the life experience and empathetic compassion it takes to connect with those in need on a level that cannot be achieved by academics alone... and that's what sets her apart. I highly recommend her for any aspect of consulting/leadership/etc for the simple fact that she has natural talent and integrity that cannot be taught."

"For me, there aren't enough adjectives to describe Elise's exceptional range of gifts, both innate and acquired, and how she delivers them. Her consummate professionalism is balanced by sincerity, compassion, intuitive insight, personable warmth, sincerity, credibility, and a humble authenticity that are truly, incredibly rare. We're talking power. Literally, an honest-to-goodness power of humanity that genuinely connects, richly leads, and inspires. So that others can do the same in their own lives and in their own unique voice.

There is a balance and harmony in everything she does..."
