Who are they?

The youngest Republican woman ever elected to Congress who, in 2021, was appointed the number 3 position in the House GOP. That new position didn’t come without complications as she balanced party priorities with policy-making, but she still found time to fight for children and rural communities.


Elise worked in the Bush administration on the Domestic Policy Council and for the office of the White House Chief of Staff. Before being elected to Congress, Elise worked at her family’s small business, Premium Plywood, founded in Upstate New York over twenty years ago.
