Before joining ERS, Melissa was a 7th grade math teacher and grade chair at Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy in Central Falls, RI. She also taught 6th grade math and ELD at Providence Public Schools as part of Teach For America. Prior to that, Melissa worked at Public Consulting Group, a public sector consulting firm, where she worked on Medicaid program integrity in the Health Practice Area. Melissa earned a B.A. in Public Policy and Economics from Duke University and an M.Ed. in Secondary Education from Rhode Island College.
