Experience & Education


Elise has been a key stakeholder in several large software publishing projects as a writer and, subsequently, as editor. Her specialty area is desktop applications, but she is equally comfortable writing in-depth technical content on mobile applications for iOS and Android. Her team’s content is widely linked as an authority source and ranks on Page 1 of Google Search for extremely tough keywords like Best PDF Editor, PDF Editor for Mac, PDF Editor for Windows, etc.

Core Expertise

Elise is a big fan of Microsoft’s desktop and cloud environments, and that’s where her expertise really converts into real-world performance. Although she understands the intricacies of cross-platform mobile app development, her bent is clearly towards desktop utilities. Which is why she’s a perfect fit at Wondershare as part of the PDFelement editorial team. Within six months of joining us here at PDFelement she had a fully functional editorial team with a full publishing calendar and millions of page views to show for it.


As a single mother of three boys under the age of 10, Elise has a full personal life tending to their needs. Despite the rigorous work schedule that she sets for herself, she finds the time to take them to their games and their private tutoring...and even a trip to the beach once a month! Elise is also an avid golfer and a friendly face at the local courses.
