Elissa Keicher first became a part of the PRC by joining us as an On-Site Volunteer in December 2016, and then completing an internship the summer of 2018. Once a caregiving position opened up, Elissa knew she wanted to make a change and left her career as a Registered Nurse to officially join the PRC Care Staff team in January 2019. Elissa grew up in New York and attended the State University of New York at Buffalo earning a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Anthropology, then went on to get her nursing degree at Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lexington, KY. Elissa lives in Georgetown, KY with her husband and their very intelligent pets Dundee the dog and Couver the cat. Elissa grew up caring for a variety of animals and pets in her home and has always dreamed of helping animals in need. Her dream is finally coming true at the Primate Rescue Center!
