Else graduated from the Agriculture University of Iceland. Her interests are related to land restoration, land conservation and afforestation. Last summer she established a pilot project in relation to the Selá-river in cooperation with the angling club Strengur and made a proposal for a three-year action plan for land restoration and afforestation in the river area. The main idea is to improve the vegetation, reduce erosion and slowly increase the amount of organic material which merges into the river, therefore contributing to the food web of the organisms in the river. Else has worked as project manager for the organization Austurbrú in Northeast Iceland and for the municipality of Vopnafjordur. She is now working freelance since January 2020.
