    Mrs. Lee

    Area Director

    My name is Melissa Lee, and I have been a part of the Primrose family since March 2014. I have been the Director for about 7 years now. I started out in childcare about 11 years ago working with school-age children. Through my years of experience, I found a true love working with children. Just recently, I became a mother myself, to a wonderful little boy named Lathan. I have my Master’s degree in Criminology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Sam Houston State University. When I started college, I had a professional plan all carved out; however, once I entered childcare I feel that I found my passion. I love working here with my Primrose family.
