Melissa Harris - Radius Althorp

Melissa Harris

Facility Manager


After completing her overseas travels, Melissa retrained as a Registered Nurse deciding it was time for a career change that was going to make a positive difference in her life and the lives of others.

Having specialised in Orthopaedics and Education, Melissa moved into aged care management 10 years ago and has worked throughout New Zealand in various aged care managerial roles ever since.

She moved to the lovely Bay of Plenty just over a year ago and is now, along with her wonderful team, enjoying building Radius Althorp into one of the best age care facilities in Tauranga.

In her spare time Melissa likes exploring the beautiful landscapes the Bay has to offer, following rugby and motorsport and is a bit of a handy-woman with property renovation and design.
