Elise Bronzo, Senior Director, Membership
As Indagare's Senior Director of Membership, Elise oversees the Indagare Membership Team and member experience strategy. During her time at Indagare, she has collaborated with various institutions to provide exclusive access and special experiences for Indagare members, hosted Insider Journeys to Mexico City, Marrakech, India and Egypt and scouted such locales as Jordan, Israel, India, Peru, Botswana and Tanzania. Prior to joining Indagare in 2014, Elise lived in Cambodia while working for the Harpswell Foundation in Phnom Penh and participated in Aboriginal arts-focused programs in Western Australia through Colgate University, her alma mater. Insatiably curious, Elise sees travel—at its best—as a vehicle for education, cultural exchange and social change. She seeks out local markets everywhere she goes and has a particular interest in indigenous religions, artisan crafts and wellness methods across cultures.
Favorite Travel Quote:
“If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.” -Anthony Bourdain
