Sr. Beverage Marketing Manager by day, wino by night! Elisa has worked in the hospitality industry for 10+ years leading the company in strategic initiatives related to the beverage program for all domestic and global locations. Driven by her passion and a few glasses of wine, she has not only helped oversee the brand's efforts in revamping the beverage program but has also been instrumental in developing various beverage training applications. Prior to her role as Sr. Beverage Marketing Manager, Elisa started her career at P.F. Chang's in Operations, where she helped implement national menu rollouts. Outside of work, you can find her on the slopes where she enjoys skiing moguls and drinking an ice cold beer!
I am honored to be receiving the Fuel Your Dreams Scholarship presented by the Women of the Vine & Spirits Foundation Scholarship Committee. The awarded amount will be applied to my academic tuition as I work toward attaining my Master’s in Business Administration at the Arizona State University W.P. Carey School of Business. As an advocate for ongoing education, I believe there is nothing more powerful than the positive impacts of learning. This scholarship will not only nurture my personal development, but will allow for me to diversify my professional endeavors within the hospitality industry as well.
