Elisa joined the MKTG team just a few short months ago as the Senior Event Producer for the Rocky Mountain Region. She currently overseas both the commercial and non-commercial activation business on behalf of Diageo. Prior to this role, she was the Director of Special Events for Boys & Girls Club; as well as a Manager for the Colorado Rockies, overseeing Promotions, Special Events, and Rooftop Marketing. She is known as a highly effective communicator with a formidable reputation for providing consistent and creative results, while establishing lasting and genuine relationships. As her roles indicate, she continues to have an exceptional and successful career focused in promotions, marketing, special events, and fundraising. This has helped her grow her network in a multitude of industries, such as professional sports, consumer goods, and in the non-profit realm. When she isn’t focused on her clients and events, she enjoys all of the outdoor sports and adventures Colorado, her home state, has to offer. Elisa also has a proclivity for travel and the desire to experience new cultures. This has allowed her to learn and grow as a person which has benefited her personally and professionally by unmeasurable amounts. Because of this, she makes the effort to take at least one international trip to new country, every year, eating and drinking her way through a new culture, language and place.
