Elyse has served with Friends In Deed since 2020 at both The Food Pantry and Bad Weather Shelter. As a Pasadena native, she was interested in working with FID as she has witnessed the impact our programs have made on the community. Elyse was a Pasadena Youth Council member throughout high school and worked with city council members to organize community events. She has worked with Pasadena City College’s Lancer Pantry to help combat food and housing insecurity that students face, and has most recently become FID’s Development Associate.
Elyse holds a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. When she is not working or volunteering in the community, Elyse can be found in the kitchen whipping up a new food or cocktail recipe, at a concert, or cheering on the Trojans.
