Melissa Donohue

Melissa Donahue joined the BWEF Board of Directors in 2019. She is a mom of 2 children in the district, and was born and raised in Bristol. She lived out of state between Houston and Boston for 10 years, and returned to Bristol in 2013 to raise her family.

Melissa has worked in the field of higher education as a financial aid administrator for 18 years. Her work has largely focused on educating students and their families about the cost of higher education, student loan debt, and financial literacy. She has worked for several public and private colleges and universities, and both 2 and 4 year institutions. Currently, she is the Associate Director of Student Financial Services at Rhode Island School of Design. Melissa holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Rhode Island (Go Rhody!) and a M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Salem State University.

Melissa is active with the Rockwell PTO. She loves travelling to Walt Disney World as often as possible, cheering on the Red Sox and Rhody basketball, reading, baking, and spending time with her husband, children, and their rescue dog Lilly.
