What is your favorite thing about the TAMUG experience?
TAMUG is unique because it is a small campus with a big university attachment. I enjoy being able to know the stories of my students and check-in on them to help them towards their success.

What is your best advice for incoming students?
My advice seems simple but go to your classes and talk to those around you. You can’t learn the materials and know the expectations without being in the class with your peers and faculty.

What do you do when you are not advising/coaching/working?
When I am not working, I am exploring Houston with my dogs and family to find new outdoor areas and hidden treasures of the city.
