Board Member

Melissa comes to us with an international background, a BA in Literature and Language from the University of Kent, a Masters in Education from the University of Cambridge, and 7 years of teaching experience in the UK, Italy, and India. Since coming to the States nearly a decade ago, she has pursued a career in Admin and Tech, working in the Legal department for Microsoft and in Development for several non-profits, including Island Senior Resources. She currently works in the Island County Health Department and is a proud mom of two phenomenal young humans.

Through personal experience in her own family, Melissa is painfully aware of the need to address aging with grace and comfort, with solid resources and easily accessible information and services. She is keen to ensure the longevity of Island Senior Resources and make sure that we are keeping up with an ever-changing population.
