“X-New Yorker, X-Valley Girl, X-cellent people person and always ready to help you,” she says.
Elise Haton was born in Bronx, New York and moved to the San Fernando Valley when she was 13. She attended Cal State University Northridge where she majored in Business.
She worked for Wells Fargo Bank for 17 years and was a Vice President at the Beverly Hills Branch. Since moving to Riverside she volunteered on the then named Riverside General Hospital Foundation Board and was chair of some committees for the “Festival of Trees” which is a yearly event run by the board of the hospital foundation. The proceeds of this fundraiser go to the neo-natal ward for purchasing equipment to better serve their little patients.
Elise has been Temple Administrator since 1999 and recently received her “Senior” status in Temple Administration from the National Association of Temple Administrators. She is responsible for all administrative functions.
Her hobby is bicycle riding. One of her favorite things about being Jewish is working at Temple Beth El and watching our Jewish children grow into young adults who embrace Judaism.
