Elisa was born in Châtenay-Malabry in the Hauts-de-Seine region and began playing football in Épinay at the age of six. After a short spell at Villebon, the young defender made her professional debut for FCF Juvisy at the age of 18. In 2019, she left her first club, now Paris FC, to join Montpellier HSC.
After starting out with Les Bleues at U17 level, Elisa then went on to play for all the national youth teams, including winning the European U19 Championship alongside Grâce Geyoro and Marie-Antoinette Katoto in 2016. Three years later, she was called up to the senior team, where she has since had numerous caps.
