After 17 years as a teacher, Elise left the classroom to work from home as a content specialist for an education network. She is a mom to a toddler boy, age 2, and bonus mom to 2 girls, ages 8 and 13. Her socials focus on budget-friendly toddler activities, with a dose of other mom/homemaker/WFH lifestyle content.
Gugu Guru: Tell us your favorite thing to do when you’re not creating content.
