“Educate and Empower through Respect and you will change the World right before your very eyes!”

Growing up in a fishing family in a small town north of Seattle, Elise learned how to gut fish before she could even tie her own shoes. Life was lived outside climbing trees, catching tadpoles, building forts, exploring the San Juan Islands, working on fishing boats and treasure hunting on the shores of Puget Sound. The ocean has always played a vital role in Elise's life. Her love for the ocean has grown exponentially over the years.

With over 30 years working in ocean conservation and education, Elise uses her extensive network to establish strategic partnerships through introductions to key players in those industries. Elise has chosen to strive, through action to manage the slow change that needs to take place to make a difference in the world. To the best of her abilities she uses all the facilities available to her to create partnerships, awareness, advocacy and education through a variety of applications, introductions, projects, events and programs.

“Find Your PASSION and FOLLOW IT!" Elise has found hers and you will ALWAYS find her somewhere in, on, over, under or around the ocean working tirelessly to make a difference for us and our future on this planet.
