In her work and life, Elisa weaves in a passion for wellness, beauty, children, love, travel, and creating a connection with people via creativity. On her path towards a career in integrative medicine with a focus on women's and children's health in underserved populations, she discovered a joy in photography and stepped behind the lens. She loves capturing love, light, and spirit in people, as well as vibrant natural foods and nature. Experience in front of the camera has proven an asset in directing and helping folks feel comfortable.
Elisa volunteers in OB-GYN at Ventura County Medical Center, a safety net hospital, often helping in delivery rooms. She has also taught and co-founded donation-based yoga communities in California and Hawaii.
