Elyse LaCosse / The Go - To
Elyse is a diehard member of the O2 family, having experienced the pain of hanging for hours constructing the treehouse floor, and the joy of standing on that floor! She is also the first initiate into the O2 Road Trip Hall of Fame. Elyse is our go-to as project manager, eco-tourism lead, treehouse builder, and resident masseuse. Recently graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, she holds a B.S: Visualization with studies in Sustainable Design. Elyse's true passion is traveling, she wants to go anywhere and everywhere and take O2 with her. Elyse studied Sustainable Tourism Development while in London and is ecstatic to be heading up our eco-tourism ventures. She is most interested in designing holistic systems; considering the economic, socio-cultural, and environmental impacts of design. She will bring this concept to our eco-tourism projects to work with the local cultures, not for them. When she's not "all things treehouse", Elyse is dreaming about her next adventure, reading travel books, doing yoga, working on her own designs, and helping develop curriculum as a teaching assistant for an MCAD class, Aesthetics of Sustainability.
