Melissa Harrison is a Phoenix native, born in 1992. Her interest in helping students succeed began early as she started tutoring at 16 years old and found it rewarding when her peers "got it." She studied special education at Northern Arizona University and applied behavior analysis at Arizona State University. She then went on to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and work at Blossom Park. Currently, Melissa is working on applying precision teaching practices to graduate student's studies, but still finds time to go on bike rides with her dog Buddy in the basket.
