Elyssa discovered her passion for music when she began taking piano lessons at age four. When she started playing guitar and singing in middle school, she decided that she wanted to turn her love for music into a career. She will be attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA to earn her bachelor's degree. Elyssa gets involved in the Fontbonne community by bringing music to school events. She has played at the Harvest Happening, the STEM Fair, and the Art Show. She also helps provide music at every Mass and is a member of Select Chorus. Aside from playing music, Elyssa is co-editor-in-chief of the Folio and a Publicity Chairperson on SAC. She credits former and current music teachers Mrs. O'Donnell and Mr. Bailey for laying the foundation for her professional goals.
