Elise is the first point of contact with patients and visitors to the STAR Center. What she enjoys most about her work is getting to know our patients and their families. Elise takes the time to understand our patients' needs and what they are seeking from our services. She makes patients aware of the resources offered at the center, schedules all appointments, and helps families navigate their complex insurance plans with ease. Elise also ensures that all aspects of the STAR Center, from clinic to advocacy efforts to research, are running smoothly by organizing meetings, maintaining inventory, and following up with all staff to make sure deadlines are met. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her nephews. As a native of the Bay Area, she is an avid Giants, Niners, and Sharks fan.
