Mellissa is of proud Samoan descent. She started at MIT in 2018 in the timetabling team and she has also supported the administration team at Manukau Campus. She was then given the opportunity to join the Te Ara Oranga team as a success coach in 2020 – It’s a total new role for her but working alongside an awesome team who continue to help her upskill.

Mellisa is enjoying the opportunity to help students succeed on their education journey. She has also become very passionate about working with our Māori and Pasifika students.

Working with the Te Ara Oranga team has opened her eyes to the importance health plays in our community. So far she is loving the journey and the opportunity to make a difference.
