School: University of Massachusetts Amherst
Hometown: Swansea, Massachusetts

Elissa joined the FOX UP team as a multimedia journalist and fiil-in anchor in May of 2019.

Just two weeks after graduating from UMass Amherst with a B.A. in Journalism and a minor in Natural Resource Conservation, Elissa packed up her car and drove 20 hours with her dad to Marquette. Prior to WLUC, Elissa worked at WHDH 7News Boston in the Special Projects department, The Fall River Herald News, and WPRI-TV 12 in Providence, Rhode Island.

A self-proclaimed foodie, Elissa loves trying new restaurants and foods in her free time. She also loves animals, nature, traveling, and sailing.

While she’s never been to Michigan before, she’s so excited to explore the area and make the U.P. her new home, and show her friends from New England around.
