Elisa was raised and educated on the east coast culminating with a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design. Soon after, she followed her heart to the west coast where she furthered her education obtaining Bachelor degrees in Nursing, Sociology and Psychology, and finally a Master’s degree in Psychology from California Lutheran University.
While it may seem that all this education is not relevant to interior design, in fact, it is exactly that which makes Elisa relatable and successful. Her breadth of education, coupled with her innate passion and talents in design have allowed her to turn her first love, design, into the reality of Snake River Interiors, as well as its sister retail studio, Twenty Two Home. Somewhere along the way, Elisa managed to find 5 more loves, a truly inspirational husband and four phenomenal children!
