Mate/Emergency Medical Technician
Elise has always been drawn to the waters and the wild places of the world. From the jungles of India, to the magnificent Himalayas of Nepal, to the cerulean waters of the Caribbean, Elise’s passion for nature, social justice, and human connections has lead her all over the world. After graduating high school Elise spent a year teaching English and ballet at a nonprofit school in Northeastern India. She is now a student at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, where she is planning to study philosophy and complete the premed track. She also works part-time as a certified Emergency Medical Technician on an ambulance in the town of Brunswick. On campus she is involved in several social and environmental justice groups and hopes to spread messages of love, peace, and respect for the natural world to others. In addition to sailing and diving, Elise loves trekking, traveling, baking, and painting. This is Elise’s second summer working with ActionQuest.
