Elisa is an experienced leader, a self-described introvert, and an avid adventurer. Driven by a quest to help fellow sports coaches build athletes who are empower by sports, and prepared to life beyond the game, she takes pride in partnering with her clients to maximize their personal potential and positively impact the world. As a leadership and life coach, Elisa helps her clients gain clarity on their mission as a coach, define and communicate a coaching philosophy, and implement a coaching approach that supports development of the whole person, not just the athlete.
Elisa began her career as an Air Force officer, gaining unparalleled experience in leadership, strategy, and planning. After 5 years she transitioned to the civilian world, where she began coaching gymnastics, weightlifting, and CrossFit, and became known for expertise in mindset training, mental toughness, and building a foundation of health and wellness that supports longevity.
Elisa’s passion for personal growth through challenging perceived barriers can be traced back to sports. 17 years of competitive gymnastics and 6 years of weightlifting taught her dedication, persistence, resilience, and personal leadership. She hopes to see as much of the world as possible, and continues her pursuit for personal growth through travel, reading, weightlifting, and adventuring.
While her work and hobbies have taken her around the world, Elisa currently calls Colorado home.
