About Me

I believe students learn just as much from interacting with cultures other than their own as they do in class. A large part of the student experience is making connections and at UTA we give students  the chance to connect with students from over 100 countries. I've worked at UTA since 2014 and I enjoy helping students find those connections.

I grew up in Arlington, so I know all the best kept secrets of the area. River Legacy Park is an excellent place to run or spend a day with family. There is also so much to do on campus. Bed Races is my favorite UTA tradition. Not just the comradery or competition, but all of the awesom costumes that students put together.

advice for prospective students

Visit Campus! Try and visit more than once, and for different reasons. Loving your university choice makes every other aspect of your undergraduate experience easier.
