Elise finds constant inspiration in the Rocky Mountains and wants to live in a community of informed, engaged, and passionate locals. Hailing from Chicago, Elise fell in love with Aspen instantly while studying at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After graduating with a degree in sociology in 2011, Elise drove over the pass for the last time as a tourist and was ready to put down roots, yearning for the illusive qualifier of “Aspen Local”. Over the past four years in the valley Elise has developed a deep sense of connection with those in the Roaring Fork; most notably through helping open Meat & Cheese in Aspen. To give back to the community she begun the Friendship Tree project in the winter of 2014. She is an avid reader and audiophile who loves travel, international cuisine, deep space and (like every good Aspenite) all things outside.
