Elise Victor

Currently: Teaching at University North Texas

Working full-time while attending college, I pursued a career in banking and finance. I quickly realized it wasn't the right path for me.

Determined to find my true passion, I went back to school and studied healthcare. I landed executive positions at several large healthcare and consulting firms, honing my leadership skills.

🔥 Hitting Burnout
The demanding travel and work schedules eventually took their toll, leaving me feeling burnt out and yearning for a change.

In search of fulfillment, I embarked on a journey to earn my PhD in Information Science in 2017 and began exploring the world of AI in 2020.

Currently, I'm teaching part-time at the University of North Texas in the Information Science department, where I share my knowledge and experiences with the next generation.

🔊 AI Speaker Series:
As an expert speaker, I host an AI speaker series, sparking thought-provoking discussions on AI's future and ethical implications.

🌐 Upcoming AI Venture:
I'm working on an AI company (TheRAM.ai) set to launch later this year, dedicated to revolutionizing the way businesses and education intersect with AI.

Through hard work, resilience, and a passion for learning, I've navigated challenges to become a trusted expert in AI, education, and business. Join me on this journey as we reshape the future together.
