She has an MPhil (Classical Studies) from Columbia, MA (Classics) from University of Virginia, and AB magna cum laude (Classical Philology) from Radcliffe College of Harvard University.
Mignone was awarded a Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome (AAR) and spent the subsequent year as a fellow at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. She came to Brown after a year as faculty at NYU.
