Elise M. French, NP

A board-certified Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, Elise earned her Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of South Florida and her Master of Science in nursing from Virginia Commonwealth University.

With an appreciation for the wide scope and diversity of women's health, Elise is passionate about delivering a continuum of care to women from adolescence to childbearing years and into advanced years. She views her practice as a partnership with the patient, as well as with the physicians she collaborates with. Her goal is to offer her patients a well-rounded approach and open access to care. Elise specializes in prenatal management with a particular interest in mental health and pregnancy. She also offers expertise in family planning, from contraception to conception, in addition to well-woman care to support overall wellbeing and health.

Growing up in a military family and being an Army wife afforded Elise the opportunity to live in many places before she and her now-retired husband settled in Williamsburg in 2002. They have two daughters and love to be active outdoors as a family, from daily walks to swimming, bike rides and gardening. Elise also enjoys cooking, traveling and theater.
