Elise is a Web Developer at IO Education, an ed-tech company that does data aggregation and visualization for K-12 schools.

Two years ago, it was a Girl Develop It course that prompted her career-change into software development. Previously, she was a golf tournament rules official, and can tell you way too much about the terms "abnormal ground conditions", "ball in play" and "casual water".
