Aboard our ships Elise is outgoing, funny, and a valuable resource for both our guests and our other staffers—she loves learning the historical parts of the places we visit, always has notes and resources, and is genuinely happy to share. Need to find her? Just look for the naturalist in purple. Purple hats, purple jackets, purple scarves. Elise wears her love for the royal color right on her sleeve.
Those rare moments when it’s time to take a break from work and travel, Elise immerses herself in pure wildness. You can find her splitting her time between the garden island of Kauai, Hawaii and her home just outside the entrance of Denali National Park in Alaska. If you are ever fortunate enough to travel with her make sure you ask about her now famous Alaska outhouse!
