Elyse Lefebvre

Economics, International Development, McGill University, 2013

A recent graduate of Economics from McGill University, Elyse is passionate about entrepreneurship as a way to leave her mark on the world. 

Her entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at a young age, when she started a recycling program for her school district that is still running today. She went on to organize a benefit concert and raised over $14,000 for the Canadian Red Cross Haitian Relief Fund. 

During her time at McGill University, Elyse founded her own residential painting company, where she ran operations and managed over 10 employees. After participating in the International Exchange Program at Sciences Po Paris, she co-founded the McGill Exchange Students Association with the hope of encouraging other students to pursue international educational experiences. Recently, Elyse has been working as a Business Analyst with Allegro MicroSystems, gaining valuable experience with data analysis, strategy, and operations.
