More about Elise

Elise enjoys the water and all aspects of becoming 1% better*.  She is a trained chef and registered dietitian. Also, a mom of two kids who love to swim.  After being at UVAC so much for swim lessons and the swim team, she started to volunteer with swim instruction.  Now she is a group and private lesson instructor.  She loves to see students become more confident and comfortable in the water to grow their skills.

When Elise isn’t working she enjoys teaching about healthy eating, being outside, cooking, mountain biking, yoga, and spending time with her family!

*When asked if 1% was a typo, this is her brilliant answer:

“Only 1%.

With the intention of building microhabits and behavioral change, 1% each day can be exponential.”
