Hello! My name is Elise and I am the new Account Coordinator over here at Powderkeg. I am excited to be a part of the team and feel that this is an excellent opportunity to utilize my areas of expertise: web design, project coordination, relationship management.

I am originally from southern Illinois where I spent my childhood making short films, exploring my passion for photography, and being involved with music in any way possible (band, piano lessons, choir, musicals). I then went on to study at Illinois State University, earning a bachelor’s in Graphic Communication and a master’s in Project Management. I most recently worked for COUNTRY Financial, where I focused on web design and managed several digital projects. This combination of responsibilities was a wonderful opportunity, giving me experience in both the creative and technical sides of digital marketing. One of my favorite aspects throughout my professional career has been collaborating with others, something I am excited to continue here at Powderkeg.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring the great outdoors, working out, and being artsy. I recently moved to the Madison area, so exploring the local sights has also been a fun to-do. I am looking forward to this new adventure and working with you along the way!
