EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO THE CEO
Elissa was born in Montreal and immigrated to New Jersey with my family in 1998. Both my parents are from Southern Italy so I was fortunate enough to spend my summers growing up there. Due to my multicultural background I cultivated an affinity for languages and is the reason I speak both French and Italian fluently. I attended Muhlenberg College where I continued my French studies and majored in International Relations with a concentration in Global Independence. After graduating College I moved to Paris to further improve my French language skills and worked in a vintage store assisting the shop’s owner with her social media presence. I began my career journey in 2010 in New York City and even though the world fascinates me, I truly feel that New York is a hub that brings all these amazing cultures together. I am thrilled to be joining Benenson Strategy Group to further the amazing impact and success of this organization.
