Elisha grew up in the countryside of the Ottawa valley before moving to the big city in her late teens to attend Toronto’s Ryerson University where she received her B.A. in Communications. Twenty years later, she’s still in Toronto and now lives in the cozy west end with her husband and three young children. Elisha taught ballet, jazz, tap and musical theatre full time for many years before having children and now, when possible, manages to incorporate her background in the performing arts into her work at her children’s school. Her husband, Justin, serves as the senior pastor of a church they love, West Toronto Baptist Church in the Junction neighbourhood.
