Ellie Grossman is a postgraduate associate at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. Her duties at the Center entail working primarily with the Botin Foundation to formulate workshops that teach emotional regulation through creativity and art to adults and children. She earned her B.F.A. from Northeastern University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts with Tufts University. With this undergraduate education, Ellie was able to study psychology at Northeastern and painting at the SMFA at Tufts allowing her to combine these discourses. For her final thesis, Ellie visually depicted perception and metaperception in her interpersonal relationships through the form of large-scale oil paintings. She hopes to continue this body of work, allowing her experiences at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to inform her artistic practice.

In addition to her art background, Ellie completed two full-time internships at Rosie’s Place in Boston, MA and Vinfen in Somerville, MA in which she worked with poor and homeless women and adults with mental illness and disabilities, respectively. In addition to going back to Rosie’s Place and Vinfen to visit her former clients, Ellie enjoys painting, baking and all things creativity.
