About Me

I work in the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center coordinating events like Maverick Experience, Maverick Round Up, and Scholarship Night. I'm lucky enough to plan events that help make a student's college search process a little easier. I've worked in this position since 2016, but I also worked as on student on campus since 2010. I was even a MavElite tour guide!

Getting involved in leadership organizations at UTA made a huge impact on my student experience and my life. As an advisor for Freshman Leaders on Campus (FLOC) I learned so much about leadership and organization, which I've been able to take into every job since. I also developed new skill sets and experienced new things I wouldn't have been able to do if I wasn't involved on campus.

Advice to Prospective Students

Be sure that the university you choose will allow you to create, in whatever way, a supportive network. Whether you've got family and friends nearby or not, there are lots of opportunities to get involved and make new friends. Be sure that you will be able to create for yourself a way of getting support so that you don't ever feel alone in your college years.
