Harrison grew up in the Atlanta area and spent most of his summers at a sleepaway camp in North Carolina that stoked his love for the outdoors. Later, he worked at that same camp during the summers while attending Young Harris College in North Georgia. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Outdoor Leadership with an Appalachian Studies minor. While in school, Harrison worked at the school’s climbing wall, where he developed a love for rock climbing. After graduating, he saw SOAR as a natural next step, so he shipped out to Wyoming for a summer as an activity specialist at Eagle View Ranch. He loved working with SOAR so much that he decided to stay on as a GAP Year Mentor. Harrison knows that his experience with ADHD and learning differences will allow him to identify with and help participants build skills to use in their lives after SOAR. Harrison spends his free time climbing, backpacking, and exploring the Wild West when he is not working.

Harrison is a certified Wilderness First Responder and Waterfront Lifeguard.
