My Story

Call me Elisa, short for Elizabeth. I am a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon who has worked both in private practice as well as for a bureaucratic hospital system. The hospital system, along with taking 24-7 call, resulted in burnout.   

I dove into the world of personal finance and investing when I was in the grad school years of the MSTP (combined MD/PhD program) and set my mind toward FIRE before the term became popularized. I started investing in stocks and mutual funds as a graduate student. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I tackled real estate investing and flipped two houses before graduating medical school.


When I reached burnout, I turned again to real estate investing as the avenue to financial independence so I could walk away from medicine. Luckily, my real estate journey including an introduction to coaching and mindset. It was really with coaching, that I was able to overcome burnout and start to design my ideal life now, and not waiting until FIRE. 


I continue to invest in real estate both actively with rental property I self-manage and passively with syndications and real estate funds.

I can help you overcome burnout, get out of the trap of arrival fallacy, and build your path to financial independence while enjoying the journey to get there. I can’t wait to work on your money mindset or help you toward whatever goal you want to accomplish.
