Director of Development
Elissa has a husband (Neil) and two college-age kids (Isabella is at Carleton College, and Langston is at St. Olaf College) and lives in Arden Hills with Soshi (a rescue dog that is part Pug, part Chihuahua). She enjoys downhill and cross-country skiing, golf, photography, and hiking (favorite hiking place is along the North Shore of Lake Superior). Elissa loves to travel - and some of her favorite places include the Amalfi coast in Italy, Prague and Český Krumlov in the Czech Republic, and Reims, France. She also really enjoys going out to movies, plays, and concerts (which has been really limited for the past two years) and likes to get suggestions for new shows to watch and new books to read.
