I’m Elise Granata, a marketer, community experience designer, and cheerleader for great storytelling. I’ve spent 10 years in the arts and social purpose organizations, working with community spaces, arts non-profits, and body-positive punk gyms alike. I’m currently the Brand & Community Experience Manager at the MAH where I’ve worked since 2013. In that time, I’ve built the MAH's storytelling strategy from the ground up, strengthened membership acquisitions and renewals, and designed great experiences for the one-of-a-kind Santa Cruz community.

I grew up on the east coast and studied writing and creative management at SUNY Purchase College. I currently live in Santa Cruz, California. I am also the founder of the epic social experience POWER HOUR OF FUN.

I’d love to connect with you. E-mail me at elisegranata@gmail.com or send me an invite on LinkedIn.
