Vince Lombardi said, “The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.”  As a Success Coach, I am passionate about helping my students put in the work and reach their goals.  I work with my students as they transition into college.  I help them with everything from degree plans, time management, organization, stress management, connecting on campus, becoming independent, and more.  I understand that every student is different and there is no “one size fits all” approach to college.  I strive to help my student find their own, unique path to success. 

My educational background includes a BS in mathematical sciences and a M.Ed. in Adult and Higher Education.  I earned both degrees at the University of Houston-Victoria.  I am currently pursuing a doctorate in Educational Leadership at Lamar University.
