A South Florida native, Elyssa has been a professional in the creative industry for more than 13 years.
She held various key and influential roles before joining the PaperStreet team as Art Director, including working for three years at a Fortune 500 company as a design and creative marketing specialist, starting a women’s clothing line—managing more than 300 national accounts for five years—and, founding a community project dedicated to providing creative activities for children in the hospital.
Drawing on her collective background in branding, design, creative consultation and marketing, Elyssa develops a unique brand and web presence for clients all over the world. She is committed to helping businesses distinguish themselves and applies her knowledge and creativity to help them stand out from their competition.
To delve a little deeper in her background, after graduating from Pine Crest School, Elyssa pursued her passion for art and design at the University of Florida, where she obtained her BFA in Graphic Design in a prime program that accepts only one out of four students. She also received the Florida Bright Future Scholarship and Amy DeGrove Fine Arts Scholarship and graduated cum laude with President’s honors, making the Dean’s list eight semesters.
Outside of PaperStreet, Elyssa loves spending time with family, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, painting, traveling to new and favorite destinations, being a foodie (either at new restaurants or in her own kitchen), and enjoying live music. She lives in east Fort Lauderdale with her husband Dave, son Lucas and Frenchie, Frankie.
