About Elisa

Associate Attorney In St. Louis, MO

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I attended Incarnate Word Academy for high school before attending Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO, where I received University Honors and two B.A. degrees in Political Science and Dance. I then attended Washington and Lee University Law School in Lexington, VA, to experience my independence.

Outside of work, I have spent my lifetime in various genealogical organizations which promote, education, patriotism, historic preservation, among other values. I joined my first organization at birth, and now continue to volunteer with that organization to educate children and help them learn about history and our nation.

In my spare time, I am an avid reader of books, manga, and comic books; I play video games; and I spend time with my three frogs, Breia, Peter, and Catfish, and my cat, Nebula.
