Houston, Texas



My college counseling talent stems from my passion for higher education/student affairs. I have worked. Since I was an undergraduate student, I have worked in variety of college campus departments and those experiences led to my interest in pursing college access opportunities. Since 2014, I have been a part of the nonprofit, college admissions, and charter school arenas. As a result, I have coached and supported over 100 young people pursue a variety of post secondary opportunities.
