In my job, I work with a fantastic team of professionals who assist incoming students with college readiness.  Our department is specifically knowledgeable about the Texas Success Initiative (TSI).  We use individual TSI test results to advise students on the courses they can enroll in and help them develop the fundamental skills needed to succeed in college coursework. My entire professional career has been in education.  I hold a bachelor's degree in Multidisciplinary Studies and a master's degree in Educational Administration.  In the past, I have worked as a classroom teacher, instructional specialist, curriculum director, and assistant superintendent.

I love to spend time with my family, travel, and read.
