Melissa received her bachelors degree in Child Development from the University of Maine in 1999. She was a social worker for the next four years and had the opportunity to work with and learn from many families and children. Melissa married her husband Pete, in 2001. Staying at home and raising two boys who were born eighteen months apart while earning her Masters Degree in School Counseling was the focus from 2003-2008. Starting work at McGraw in the Fall of 2008 on the same day her oldest son started Kindergarten was a big deal to the Erickson family! Melissa couldn’t be happier serving the children in this community and sharing her own children with the wonderful RSU 22 family. In 2015, the Ericksons officially welcomed a little girl into their family and now Melissa is eagerly awaiting the day when her daughter will walk through those doors and be a part of McGraw as well.
