about me

I manage UTA's group visit program, which means I work with school and community groups to schedule their visits to campus. I also coordinate several recruitment events, including Senior Academic Excellence Days, Merit Mavs, and our Richard Greene Scholar rotations. I've worked at UTA since 2014.

I like attending the Maverick Speaker Series on campus. They bring exciting and interesting people to campus every year! Past speakers have included Jane Goodall, Bill Nye, Anderson Cooper, Sanjay Gupta, and Ron Paul, to name a few. The best part is that these events are free! I love that opportunities like this exist right here on our campus.

advice for prospective students

Give yourself options. Don't disregard a school just because it's not initially your first choice. Make as many campus visits as you can to really get a feel for what the community is like at each university. You'll be surprised how your options come into focus after visiting them in person.
