Elyse Dittrich was born and raised in Carlsbad, where she has loved animals since as long as she can remember. Growing up with dogs, cats, birds, lizards and horses, it was only natural that she would end up volunteering wherever there were animals! She has a passion for SNAP (Spay Neuter Action Project), the Feral Cat Coalition, as well as local animal shelters and rescues. Most recently her path has led her to FACE, where she looks forward to making a positive impact on San Diego human and animal lives. When she’s not petting animals, Elyse sells real estate here in San Diego and loves the beach, hiking, playing tennis and trying new restaurants.
