Elyse graduated in May 2008 from the University of Florida and majored in Industrial and Systems Engineering, with minors in Sales Engineering and Business Administration. Elyse liked her major because it deals with efficiency and improving processes, which she finds to be very practical. She began her first full time job in July 2008 at Schlumberger in Lawrence, Kansas as a Six Sigma Engineer. She and Chris moved to Kansas in July 2008, just after they got married.
Elyse grew up in New Port Richey, Florida and lived there until she graduated from high school in 2004 and began attending the University of Florida. Elyse and Chris met in 2001 when his dad became the Minister of Music at First Baptist Church of New Port Richey, where she had attended church her whole life.
Elyse loves to be outside playing sports, fishing, and hanging out at the beach.

Chris graduated from the University of Florida in December 2007, where he majored in Marketing and minored in Entrepreneurship. He has owned his own business, Trifecta Agencies, since he was 16 years old. The company began as Automotive Marketing, but has since expanded its market to be described as business solutions. This includes marketing and promotions for any company or anybody, from items like business cards, flyers, websites, and logo design. Chris is a very talented artist and graphic designer and can make anything look good.
Chris’ dad is a Southern Baptist Minister of Music and Chris’ family moved around several times as he was growing up. He was born in Ashland, Alabama, but was only 6 weeks old when they moved to Griffin, Georgia. Next, they moved to Montgomery, Alabama, then to Ocala, Florida where they spent a few years, and spent a short 6 months in Lexington, Georgia. They then lived in Boca Raton, Florida for 7 years where Chris attended 3rd-9th grades. He lived in Augusta, Georgia for 10th grade and finally moved to New Port Richey in 2001 where he met Elyse!
Chris received his Associate of Arts degree from Pasco-Hernando Community College before attending the University of Florida for his junior and senior years. Elyse was in her sophomore and junior years at that time and they have many great memories of UF, especially going to Gator football games, playing racquetball at the student rec center, and hanging out with their friends from school and church.
Now that Chris and Elyse have moved, Chris has expanded his business, Trifecta Agencies, to Kansas while continuing with business in Florida and throughout the US.
