Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Caring

Hi! I am Elise! I have worked with Staying Ahead of the Game since 2011, and I feel so blessed for the rewarding by mentor role that I have had with students over the years. Since beginning at SAOTG, I have completed a master’s degree in counseling, and I am now able to help individuals conquer all of the obstacles that they come across with grace and determination both as a school counselor and with private clients. I feel incredibly passionate about serving others and encouraging them to grow into the best versions of themselves through consistent, rewarding effort.

The most valuable gifts that can be given to others are one’s time and one’s love, and I feel like my work with Staying Ahead of the Game has allowed me to give both of these to countless students over the years and to have a real impact in their lives. I am so happy that I have the opportunity to help facilitate the initial connections between students and their coaches as part of both the SAOTG coach onboarding and student onboarding processes.
