She has worked at La Patte Mobile (the vet clinic of Rosemère's physical rehabilitation centre) and the Veterinary Clinic of Fontainebleau in Blainville.

Her passion for the physical rehabilitation of geriatric and younger cats and dogs suffering from obesity, arthrosis, muscle wasting (atrophy or deformation) or joint pain led her to develop protocols for improving their quality of life and mobility. In addition, Elise helps patients who have had orthopedic surgery (e.g. lameness) or neurological symptoms (e.g., weakness or paralysis) in their medical care palliative or post-operative unit. The use of an aquatic treadmill, a therapeutic laser, ultrasound and a neuro-stimulator Transcutaneous "TENS" (electrostimulation of muscles and nerves) is part of examples of care offered at the DMV. Post-operative care of fractures or cranial cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, arthroplasty, herniated disc, fibro-cartilaginous (CTF) embolism, spondylo-cervical myelopathy (Wobbler), trauma/wounds/injuries and degenerative myelopathies are the most frequently treated conditions.
