Q. Where are you from?
A. I was born and raised in Columbus, Texas, a little town in-between Houston and San Antonio.
Q. Where did you go to college, and what did you study?
A. After attending Blinn College for a year, I transferred to Texas A&M University. Growing up, I had a heart for teaching and planned on getting a degree in Education. During my time at Texas A&M, I changed my major to English to teach at the High School level. After graduating in May 2011, I enrolled in a program to get my Secondary Teaching Certification. In 2012, my husband received a job in Florida and we decided to move to start our lives together.
Q. How long have you been working in higher education?
A. While at Texas A&M, I worked as a Student Worker for the Office of the Provost and was immersed in the Higher Education environment. When my husband and I moved to Florida, I worked for Beacon College, the first accredited college offering Bachelors and Associates Degrees exclusively for students with learning disabilities. I was the full-time Consultant in the Writing Center and was then promoted to Coordinator. During my time at Beacon, I enjoyed working with students at the college level and felt inspired to keep pursuing a career in Higher Education. In 2013, my husband and I decided to come back to Texas to be close to family. I started working for Blinn College in August of 2013 as a Prospective Student Advisor. My goal is to educate students about attending Blinn College, inspire them to complete their education, and explain how attending college can open the door to their future.
