Vicky Harrison


Vicky Harrison is a 58 year-old semiretired school psychologist. She is currently working part-time as a school psychologist in Arizona, where she, her husband, and her younger son recently moved to less than two years ago. Prior to that, Vicky and her family lived in Ohio their entire lives. Vicky worked as a regular and special education teacher for several years and a workshop for developmentally disabled adults prior to earning her at the University of Dayton and becoming a school psychologist. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Bowling Green State University, where she graduated summa cum laude.

As a school psychologist, Vicky was trained in mental health and addiction. She, prior to her son’s addiction, opted to take a six-week optional drug/alcohol class (Street Smart) provided by the Columbus Sheriff’s Department. At age five, Vicky knew that she wanted to go into education and help children and their families. It has been her lifelong passion.
