Elise Degen is the bee’s knees when it comes to being a multi-passionate entrepreneur. She balances her daily life with multiple passion projects, a new adventure with a local business, as well as being a wife and a mom! I had the pleasure of meeting Elise when she attended my monthly Female Professionals Networking Dinner and getting to know her has just been the best.
In the short time, I’ve known Elise, I’ve watched her offer amazing support to the community, and really encourage all Boss Babes to do whatever it is they want in their business. She’s an incredibly talented woman, the best to brainstorm ideas with and an overall beautiful soul. I’m truly honoured to be able to watch her success grow and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her!
Below is a glimpse of some of the amazing projects Elise is working on and why I love them and her so much!
BELLE Co. Mobile Beauty
As a self-described, full-service beauty salon with a twist, BELLE Co. Mobile Beauty is able to provide a unique, simplified and most of all convenient experience. Elise offers totally customizable services, simply pick a basic service and then select as many add on’s as you’d like! Perfect for a solo consultation, girls night out, or girls birthday party!
A quick conversation with Elise about anything beauty related, and you’ll realize just how knowledgeable she is! And not just about application techniques, or the best products to use. She can even tell you about the product ingredients and what they can do for your skin!
Whether you’re looking for the five-minute face or the full out glam experience, she can do it for you or better yet, teach you how! While her website is currently under renovations, you can find her through her Facebook page to book your own service, watch her skincare videos, or find out about classes she holds at the Town Loft.
Elise Degen Art
Perhaps her first love, Elise began expressing emotion through art with the mentorship of her Great Aunt and local YGK artist, Irene McKim. She utilizes boldly pigmented acrylics on a canvas, woods, metals and glass with 3D elements and textures.
With each piece as unique as the emotion behind it, you’re bound to find the perfect piece for you. You can also request a commissioned piece if you have something specific in mind.
Visit her Facebook page to see her current pieces or to request your own piece.
Just as I was about to post this today, Elise released the news about her new adventure with ReFINDe Kingston Magazine and I knew I had to include it in this post! Elise has joined their marketing team and I honestly can’t think of a better combination.
For those of you that don’t know, ReFINDe Kingston Magazine focuses on everything there is to know about living in Kingston. With a passion for shopping local, they showcase a variety of locally owned businesses and allow them a platform to share their stories.
As ReFINEd describes in their About Us page ” We are passionate, authentic and sincere.” Not only, do I agree with this statement completely, I believe Elise fits this requirement! I cannot wait to see what these wonderfully talented boss babes will come up with next!
