Elisha grew up in Washington State and began playing in the woods as soon as she could walk. She started her outdoor education young, doing a preschool program through Wilderness Awareness school. Her love for the outdoors brought her to Quiet Heart as a student when she was 11, and she has stuck with it ever since, going from being a student, to a counselor, then an instructor. Elisha loves native plants and their medical uses, climbing trees, natural camouflage and concealment. She is studying biology and neuroscience at Western Washington University with the intention of pursuing a career in the medical field. Elisha has a contagious love for the outdoors and enjoys sharing her passion with the world.
