Elyse was born and raised in Melbourne[3] to Stuart and Kim. She has two younger siblings, a sister, Tahlea, and a brother, Brayden.

Elyse started modeling in when she was 10 years old. Throughout primary school, she worked for a group of family brands, such as Target, until she was chosen for a Jay Jays campaign.[4] When she turned 16, she travelled to China and Hong Kong to model internationally.[5]

Elyse and her boyfriend Josh Barker, were one of five couples competing in Nine Network’s thirteenth season of The Block, premiered on 30 July 2017.[11] They won when their renovated house sold at auction to comedian Dave Hughes, for $3.067 million AUD. This allowed the couple to pay off their mortgage in real life.[12] Also in 2017, Elyse became WaterAid’s event ambassador, in her first charity ambassador role.[13]

The publicity boost from Elyse’s win in The Block, helped her book more modelling gigs and has contributed to a busy 2018, particularly with ambassador roles.[14] She is an ambassador for Aveda Haircare,[15] Seafolly, Davidoff Parfum ‘Cool Water’ Fragrance,[16] and more recently Myer, where fellow Aussie model Jennifer Hawkins stepped down from her role there after 12 years.[17]
