about me 

I help recruit students from the Fort Worth and East Texas Areas as well as help prospective student though the application process. I’ve worked at the University of Texas at Arlington since August 2017. I love getting to help high schoolers and being able to meet so many new people all over the state!

My favorite thing about UTA is how diverse the school is. Without an abundance of different cultures, the campus would be very dull. Another thing I like about UTA is how accessible it is. We really try to cater every detail to the student’s wants and needs. 

advice for prospective students

When I was in college, living on campus really helped mold my experience! I met so many new people, got involved, networked, and had easy access to an abundance of resources. It is so important to visit campus when choosing which college to attend. This helped me make my decision of where I wanted to spend the next four years!
