Elisa has been in the entertainment industry for over a decade as an actor and stunt woman. Training under Chris Tortora and John Zimmerman, she has worked in theme parks such as Gatorland Orlando, Silverwood, and Universal Studios, as well as in films and commercials. She has driven monster trucks, performed multiple body burns, and done high falls up to 40 feet, but her favorite stunt is a cool fight scene.
For as long she can remember, Grace Dougall has dreamed of being a stunt woman. As a child, she’d watch superhero movies then run outside to recreate her favorite fight scenes.
Training under Chris Tortora, Grace landed her first stunt job as a member of the Silverwood Stunt Team.
With 4 years of stunt experience, including high falls, hand-to-hand stage combat, martial arts and high ropes training, Grace is excited to share her passion for stunt work with CYT students.
When she is not teaching stunts, long-boarding with her dog or developing new combat skills, you’ll find Grace leading guests through the aerial ropes courses at Tree2Tree Adventure Park.
