Executive Search Consultant
Elise Brassell has been an Executive Search Consultant with Ropella since March 2018.
Born in Jackson, Mississippi, Elise has lived all over the South, including cities in Louisiana, Georgia and, of course, Florida.
Elise earned her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with certifications in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Reading from Northwest Florida State College. While at NWFSC, she took voice, guitar and violin lessons, and was a member of the Madrigal Singers and Soundsations Show Choir. She also helped with several traveling Broadway shows that came through the theatre.
While in school, Elise worked as a camp counselor for the Waukaway Springs Christian Retreat Center. After graduation, she taught third grade and kindergarten before taking time off to focus on her writing. She currently has one published novel, with two more underway. During this time, she worked at Lifeway Christian Bookstore in Destin, Florida, which is where she met Robbie Ropella and ultimately decided to join the Ropella family.
Elise and her husband, Tommy, currently reside in Navarre with their Beagle-mix, Indy, and they are surrounded by extended family in the area. Tommy is a high school math teacher and basketball coach.
In her free time, Elise splits her time between the outdoors and creative ventures – from fishing to painting, soccer to playing guitar, and hiking to cooking. Her first book is titled “Electro: Book One of the Thunder Series.”
