Elissa - Community Relations Manager


I'm currently in graduate school at the UW working towards my library science degree. I love learning and will become obsessed with anything that has caught my interest in the moment. I watched the Olympics and picked up archery. I read a book that mentioned Troy and am now knee deep in Greek history. I know a lot about the Black Plague, Australopithecus afarensis, psychological experiments in the 1960s, Beyonce, quilting, and more. I garden, I fix appliances, I watch great TV shows.
