Elise starting her path in the veterinary world through internships at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium and at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo working with birds and desert mammals, and now she has been part of the VCH family since December 2014. She is a graduate of Kent State University with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and is currently enrolled in Tri-C's Veterinary Technician's program. She has a feline named Isabel. Elise enjoys hiking and trying new recipes that she finds on Pinterest. She’s interested in exotics, and in the future she would like to become a technologist in this area.
