Hi there! I am Elisa.
I’m pretty much your everyday person, busy, adulting, working and keeping up with my family of three kids, one housemate, and a hot, intelligent husband (who will never read this, so I can get away with that!). After filling out paperwork for the kid’s school stuff, sitting in traffic, and making grocery runs, I’m tired.
Then I add in the anti-trafficking nonprofit I run, ministry leadership, and writing, speaking and coaching with Average Advocate. No joke–I am slammed. This is why I’ve had to relearn how to do life so I am alive, and making a difference in my home, community, and world come out of that first.  This means I often have to let things go and step out of the rat race. And that is O.K.
I can’t wait to hear your story! 

Your Faves and My Faves

What's Your Type of Music?

I love folky music and techno music, hard rock and 40’s jazz. For a couple years I aspired to be a musician-songwriter and always first think of myself as a proskuneo

What Are Your Hobbies?

Believe it or not, one of my favorite parts of the day is writing my Instagram post! I am also a big fantasy and sci-fi reader.

What's Your drink?

I am not 100% a coffee snob, but I am still probably 78%. Sometimes I blog about coffee instead too at San Diego Coffee Tour.

What Do You Like To Explore?

As an adult with a budget, I couldn’t travel as I had dreamed. I began filling my wanderlust bucket with local Friday Adventure Days with my kids. We still explore wherever and whenever we can.
