Specialties: Family Medicine
Medical Education Seton Hill University (Greensburg, PA)
Associated with OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group
Elise grew up in Negaunee, Michigan, and Naples, Florida. She married a native of Gladstone, Michigan, which is why the couple returned to the area to raise their family.
She chose to work for OSF HealthCare because the Values of the ministry align with her values as a health care provider.
“I chose to go into medicine because I wanted to be able to give back to my community and serve others,” she said. “I wanted a career that would present challenges daily but in a positive way.”
The flexibility of being a physician assistant, which allows her to experience more than one specialty, is a major reason why she loves her job.
She has a son and she likes doing anything outdoors. Her family enjoys getting out and riding bikes, hiking, camping, kayaking and rock climbing.
