Communities need leaders as diverse as they are
Elise is a creator, characterised by her love of hands-on projects and atypical projects. She has travelled by road over 75,000kms over the past four years chasing her passion for empowering women and driving social change, resulting in her being at the forefront of many ‘first of their kind’ initiatives across Australia and the Asia Pacific.
Working from the heart of the Western Desert in the Northern Territory, to the Sydney foreshore and all across the region, she continues to bring her strength in communication, leadership, practical foresight, and the ability to be empathetic and connect with others to help wildly varying projects that are making the most social impact and leverage across Australia and Asia.
