Elyssa began her career in marketing and has over 25 years as a brand and marketing executive leader. She has worked on both the agency- and client-side, on large brands such as Visa, Texaco, and Citi and at the well-known disruptor in the financial space, Betterment. In these roles, she credits her success to unearthing consumer insights, building authentic connections with people, and leaning into her acute creative instincts. As a manager, she coached her teams to reach their full potential by overcoming any obstacles that stand between them and their goals.
Elyssa brings her thoughtful and approachable style to her coaching practice. She creates an environment for safe, honest conversations by building trust early on with her clients. There is no room for jargon and putting on airs in her conversations, she believes that we should always be our authentic self.
She graduated with a BS from the University of Vermont and holds a Diploma in Coaching from New York University. She is an Executive Board member of the AdClub of NY and sits on the board of the Rye Youth Council in Rye, NY. When she isn’t working with clients, she can be found running, skiing, or on the yoga mat.
