Elise Ritzel

As Lead Planner at Starling, Elise pairs her experience from the hospitality industry with production coordination to execute events that are both thoughtful and clear in execution. Her position as Director of Programming and Producer at a performing arts organization has equipped Elise to undertake events that utilize her eye for detail, ability to liaise with multiple parties, and the intuition to understand the needs of a client.

Elise has perfected the flow of an event, through management of the day, internal organization of staff, in-the-moment problem solving, and preparatory guidance for the client. Where passion and grace intersect, Elise reimagines events giving them the capacity to provoke lasting memories that surpass time.
