After receiving a B.S. in Theatre Education from the University of Evansville, Elise continued on to receive her M.F.A. in Costume Design from Southern Illinois University. She then served as a Cutter/Draper and Costume Shop Manager at the Arkansas Repertory Theater and has also worked in various roles at Santa Fe Opera, Los Rios Community College and Cedar Point. Selected design credits include Ragtime, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, RENT and Radio Golf.
