After graduating Elisheva worked for Noble Energy Inc. in Houston, Texas, for seven years, working as a development geologist on offshore oil fields in Israel, Equatorial Guinea, and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

She graduated with a Juris Doctorate degree in 2020. While in law school Elisheva was a member and Managing Editor for the Arizona Law Review journal and published her note, Academic Author Copyright Loss—Impacts and Remedies, in the journal’s Fall 2019 edition.

In her free time, Elisheva spends time outdoors with her husband, Kurt Sundell, a geology professor at Idaho State University.
