Melissa Anderson, a former captain and All-Ivy League lacrosse player at Princeton University, volunteers her time on the US Lacrosse Board of Directors.

Beyond her work with US Lacrosse, she remains highly involved in the game serving as the varsity girls’ lacrosse coach at Greenwich (Conn.) Academy where she is also the school’s director of college counseling. She also serves as co-director for Comet Girls Lacrosse.

“The chance to participate in discussions about the sport was really humbling for me, as someone who felt like I got a lot out of the sport from a very young age…It’s just exciting to be a part of it.”
