“As I started spending more time with students, and tutoring and spending more time with communities that really needed a lot of help in their educational environments, I just felt sort of called to it because this is what I really love to do and this is what I’m good at,” she says of her interest in service.

Her accomplishments include enhancing content for Plan II signature courses on social entrepreneurialism, serving as president of Orange Jackets, working as a resident assistant on campus, performing in the Innervisions Gospel choir, working with the Reformed University Fellowship campus ministry and becoming a member of the Friar Society.

Texas Parents, which is part of the Division of Student Affairs, is dedicated to being the best resource for university parents and families as their students strive for excellence.
