Guileless and brave, Elise moved from her parent’s farm to attend the nearest beauty school. She stayed in Gamote Point after graduation working at the premier beauty shop to get enough work to pay off her student loan, but her plan ultimately is to open a shop in the little town she grew up in. She is somewhat uncomfortable living in such a large city and looks forward to the day when she can go home to a calmer, friendlier environment. Because of her discomfort, she fills her time with volunteer activities to avoid “going out” with co-workers to clubs and weekend drinking events. She is able to grow and strengthen as a person without giving up her kindness, generosity, and seeking the goodness in others.
