Elisa’s fan club

Always insightful and a refreshing look on everything from sports to politics. Elisa gives me a glimpse of a woman’s perspective and since females are half the equation of humans it’s a perspective i need. I dare say other men could use that view as well especially us older white men.

6/5/2021
I love hearing stories of your journey. I always wondered how you went from the stage to the boardroom.

You were always such a wonderful actor. I’ve loved following your career.

Bravo for The Op-Ed Page

I really look forward to every episode of The Op-Rd Page. Elisa is informed, thoughtful and flat-out genuine. There’s no doubt where she stands on the issues, but she doesn’t hammer, she doesn’t preach. She presents her case in a factual, calm and confident way. I love Quick Takes. I always walk away with a show to watch, a book to read, and something to think about.
