A native Houstonian, marketing guru and event planner, Elyssa wears many hats to support our crew and clients. She is a connector of people and places, and above all else, passionate about building community. Her commitment to fitness began when she received a “lifetime” big box gym membership for her 16th birthday and also played on her high school’s first varsity softball team. Elyssa took Pilates classes in the 90’s when the reformer was relatively new to the Houston gym scene. After graduating from Texas A&M and working in the non-profit sector, she served as the marketing manager for a large commercial general contractor before becoming a freelance marketing consultant. Her service to our community is unwavering, including developing the landmark Playground for All Abilities and revitalization of Oak Forest Park. She and her husband enjoy camping with their son and daughter, collecting art, and traveling the world to experience different cultures.
