Elise was born and raised in Portland. She has been with Camp Fire since August 2015, first as a counselor with Namanu Day Camp in the City, and then as a part of the Before and After School program at Creative Science. She absolutely loves it! Elise is so excited to bring in new ideas for the kids, to work with her coworkers to create fun, exciting clubs, and to interact with the students! After her second summer as a counselor at Camp Namanu, she is looking forward to an amazing school year at CSS. In her free time Elise likes to hike, read, write, listen to music, adventure around with friends, and basically anything that involves making memories with people she loves.
