Born in California, based in Sydney, Australia.



I'm Elise, but friends call me Lease. I love salt water, cooking meals for loved ones, sounds, stories, a good run, a rolling discussion, and laughs that catch you by surprise.


I believe God is loving, people are valuable, 

and the purpose of the gig is to care for our resident humans well. In whatever setting, circumstance, or city that may be. 

The last 5 years have afforded me the opportunity to hop around Australia and the globe to see this truth in action. 

Currently, I'm planted in Sydney, working with YWAM Sydney Newtown. Pumped about it, too.
