Elise grew up in Baltimore with a twin sister who is nothing like her and two equally non-identical non-twin sisters. Elise landed in a town of 400 people in Southeast Alaska in 2006 after years spent in Brooklyn. Since then she has moved nine times within a two mile radius. Last summer her jobs included: innkeeper, librarian, EMT, and health food store cashier. She counts herself lucky to be a grad school drop-out and live in a place where people laugh at the question "what do you do for a living?". She moved to Nome in October to work for StoryCorps.
