About Me

I have a natural desire to help people, which is one of the reasons I work in this position. I've worked at UTA since 2014, and I enjoy building working relationships with my students and learning about their successes once they become UTA students.

Over the last two years I helped several students apply for the prestigious Terry Scholar program. I encouraged them to apply, helped them review the application, and gave them tips to prepare for the interview. Two of my students received the award and are successful students at UTA. That's one of the times I was most proud of the work we do here.

advice for prospective students

The number one question you should ask is if the university has your major. You want to be sure you choose a place that can help you reach your career goals. Talk to an admission counselor, like me, to find out for sure, because academic programs sometimes have different names at different universities. I also recommend taking a campus tour to ensure the university is a good fit for you.
