Non-Academic Affiliate

Elisa is interested in the areas of social justice, public policy and program development. This guides her research and motivates her desire to work with vulnerable groups in the local and global community. In 2007, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from SFU with a major in psychology and a minor in sociology. She gained extensive experience working and volunteering with children, youth and families in the social services sector. In 2014, Elisa completed a Master of Arts degree in Human Security and Peacebuilding from Royal Roads University, which included a six-month internship with the South African Human Rights Commission at the Western Cape provincial office.
Elisa recently began working at the BC Countering Radicalization to Violence Office (BC-CRVO) as the Program Coordinator for Shift. Shift is a new pilot-project funded by Public Safety Canada that seeks to counter radicalization to violence in the province. This will be done by providing support to vulnerable individuals through the adoption of a modified version of the Hub Model, an evidence-based and multi-disciplinary approach to collaborative problem solving. As the first program of this kind in B.C., it will be tracking data and measuring the success of the program to build future capacity and contribute to the field of Countering Radicalization to Violence (CRV).
