When Elise isn’t busy pulling pranks on her coworkers, she can be found helping someone fix their Excel issues. (She is our resident Excel guru.) When she isn’t at work, Elise likes to spend time with her close-knit family.

If there’s one thing you should know about Elise, it’s that she has a big heart and an even bigger sense of humor. Here are some other fun facts about her:

Q: Where are you from, and what brought you here?

I’m from St. Louis, and I found OneSpace when I was looking for a change. I was working at a really large company, but I had worked at a small company before and I loved it, so one big thing that attracted me to OneSpace was the fact that it had fewer than 100 employees. The technical and data aspects of the work that we do here also interested me a ton.

Q: What is your favorite OneSpace value?

My favorite value is “Be approachable.” I want my coworkers to feel like they can always ask me for help. Even if their questions aren’t necessarily project-specific, my peers can use my expertise on Excel or anything data-related. I also love that the OneSpace team can just speak up whenever they have a question.

Q: What really makes you geek out?

Food. I like to try new recipes on Sunday nights, and I try a new restaurant at least once a month.

Q: Do you have any pets?

I have a Boston Terrier named Macon!

Q: Favorite 90s song?

“I Saw the Sign” by Ace of Base.

Q: If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring?

A water purifier, a machete, and black pepper to make my food taste better.

Q: What do you want your legacy to be?

Being a helpful and honest person. It’s very easy to get caught up in our own lives and lose sight of those who need us. I’m much more guilty of this than I would like to be, so I try to make a conscious effort to seek out people who need my assistance or help in general. This is true in both my personal and professional lives. I want to be a person people feel comfortable approaching.

Q: If someone named a sandwich after you, what would be on that sandwich?

The Elise would have cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and a piece of fried chicken.
