Elise has a four year degree in Kinesiology and Dance, yet has always worked at Animal Hospitals and found enjoyment working with animals in the medical field. She worked as a nurse assistant for seven years at Jordan Lake Animal Hospital and as a Client Service Specialist/Kennel Staff/Vet Tech for two years at Appalachian New River Veterinary Hospital. She moved back to the Triangle area with her husband. They love to do anything outdoors, from canoeing to camping and hiking.
