Advisory Board Member Bio

Meet Elisa

Elisa Mula is the Founder of EM Designs (EMD) and Moms in Security Global Outreach (MISGO). Mula formed EMD in 2004 to achieve her vision of creating a consulting business focused on forging new paths for women in industries where they are typically underrepresented. She researched a variety of industries across the international community and ultimately determined that committing to one field – physical security – would allow EMD to make a greater difference. Focused on an industry in which she had extensive education and years of experience, Mula was able to leverage her expertise in physical security for the benefit of EMD specifically and women as a whole. EMD performs security grant and assessment services for K-12, places of worship, and other non-profit organizations, specializing in the areas of threat response training, risk assessment, risk mitigation strategy, intrusion prevention systems and policy, video surveillance, infrastructure security and more. In 2021, Mula founded Moms in Security Global Outreach, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and rescuing victims of child sex trafficking. MISGO not only raises awareness of this worldwide problem, but also hosts fundraising efforts to support rescue missions for abused and trafficked children around the globe. During her career in physical security, Mula has worked on the manufacturing, integration, and consulting aspects of the industry, while also securing her master’s degree in Protection Management from John Jay College in New York.
