Elissa appears in two Five-O shows where her husband (two different characters) is played by Jerry Waialae.
As well, she appears in two shows where one of the featured actors is James Olson.
On Baywatch Hawaii she had a recurring role as Stacy Kamano's mom. Pat Morita played her husband.
In early 2010, Elissa performed as AnMei Hsu, one of the mothers in The Joy Luck Club at the Diamond Head Theatre.
Over ten years before she did the play in a smaller venue, the Kumu Kahua Theatre in downtown Honolulu.
In that production, she played another mother, Lindo Jong.
