26-year-old Elyse Causey took her father's CEO and CFO business advice to pursue her passion for helping kids. Elyse's father was a successful businessman in C-level positions most of his life, but when the recession hit, he made a life changing decision to pursue a new route of business, one that he was passionate about - School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education.
After learning this lesson at such a young age, Elyse was determined to let her passion shine within the family business, becoming a successful General Manager of a thriving franchise at the young age of 23. Elyse has always had a special place in her heart for helping children and she wanted to be a part of something that would have a positive impact on her community by helping kids develop self-confidence and empower them to accomplish anything they put their minds to.
From the moment she walked into a School of Rock, she was dedicated to her new position, growing the business and providing a musical outlet for kids.
