Melissa’s passion for independent school admissions and desire to explore the classroom led her to Greenwich Academy in Greenwich, CT where she assumed exciting new responsibilities as a teacher and advisor. Throughout her seven-year tenure at GA, she worked as associate director of admission, taught middle school computer science and digital art classes, coached JV basketball, and advised eighth grade girls.
Melissa is beyond thrilled to join the vibrant and savvy Admissions team at Hewitt, a distinguished school committed to empowering young scholars to lead meaningful lives. She looks forward to advising a group of seventh grade girls and becoming immersed all aspects of life at Hewitt.
