Elyse Abma-Bouma

Elyse grew up south of Edmonton in the small town of Lacombe, moving to Edmonton to pursue a history degree at The King’s University. During those four years she fell in love with Edmonton and, after a brief stint at the University of Victoria, decided to call Edmonton her home.

Elyse has worked on many different projects throughout her undergrad and graduate schooling including oral history, community engaged research, creating online walking tours, and working with small archives and house museums. When she’s not writing a paper or finishing a project, Elyse can be found baking sourdough, biking to the newest cafe and planning which trip to go on or event to attend next.
