Elyse Munselle grew up in Richardson, TX, but has lived in the great city of Austin for eight years. After graduating from Texas A&M University with a BA in Finance, she moved to Austin to work as a financial fraud analyst. She has since moved into commercial lending and currently works as the Director of Underwriting at a start-up, Able Lending. She has been involved with Polished Austin since its inception and is honored to be serving as director alongside Jen. She loves being an advocate for women in business and encouraging women in their career and faith. In her free time, Elyse volunteers with 1 Dog 1 Hour and spends time exploring the ever-expanding list of new Austin restaurants with dog-friendly patios with her chocolate lab, Livy. Elyse loves traveling, listening to live music, loving rescue animals, drinking red wine, playing with her nieces and nephews, and being outside in the Texas heat, preferably by a lake with friends.
