Melissa Cornelius is the Executive Director of the Arizona Board of Technical Registration (BTR). She has been in this extremely challenging role since 2013. Hailing from the Boston area where she received her undergraduate degree from Brandeis University (home to the Fighting Judges and Ollie the Owl), Melissa ventured West shortly thereafter and obtained a law degree from the University of Arizona. With all of the obstacles that she and her staff face on a daily basis, Melissa stays steadfast in her quest to do what’s best for all of the professions the BTR regulates. As registered professionals in the State of Arizona, we owe Melissa a debt of gratitude for all that she does behind the scenes to maintain the integrity of our chosen career(s). Music by KOLARS.
