Elise Brown joined the 13WMAZ team in April 2013 as a Multimedia Journalist.

She earned her Master of Science in Journalism with a concentration in broadcast/videography from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She also studied journalism in undergrad, earning her Bachelor of Arts from Hampton University, her "Home by the Sea."

A Massachusetts native, Elise's print and video work has been carried by a number of news organizations, including The Miami Herald, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, McClatchy D.C., The Medill News Service, The Sun News and The Bellingham Herald.

Whether it's waiting for the bus, in line at the grocery store or walking down the street, she always talks to strangers. Her friends often find this odd, but Elise loves to meet new people and believes you can always learn something new by doing this.

A lifeguard and former competitive swimmer, Elise considers herself a "water baby" and can always be found at the pool swimming laps.
