Meet Elyssa

2021 graduate from York University and Sheridan College's YSDN program with a Bachelor of Design with Honours degree and proud Provisional RGD, Elyssa is currently working as a freelance Graphic Designer with Green Living Enterprises in Toronto, Canada and is a member of RGD's education committee. She aims to bring accessibility to the forefront of her designs whenever possible.

In her free time, she enjoys playing video games with her friends as well as volunteering with RGD's Designathons where small groups of students and recent graduates come together in a 12 hour design sprint for non-profit organizations in Canada. On the occasion that a long weekend arrives, you can catch her on a bus back home to Kingston to visit the family dog, Gracie.
