Office Hours: Office Hours: Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:00 pm

I’m a Junior studying Psychology on a Pre-Medicine track! Born and raised here in San Antonio and currently living at Farm Haus near UTSA, I love everything the campus and nearby community offer. I grew up on the upper northeast side of San Antonio in Schertz. There I graduated from Samuel Clemens class of 2018! My hobbies have always been tutoring/mentoring, music (I’m a percussionist), and reading non-fiction. Currently, my career plan is to graduate in Fall 2022, attend grad school to get my M.S. in Psychology at OLLU, then attend medical school at UTHSCSA and commission into the USAF!

Extracurriculars:

  • Hunger and Homelessness Movement at UTSA
  • Tutoring in STEM
  • Volunteering (VOICES)
  • Advocating for Mental Health (Active Minds)

SPICES:

  • Skill Development - Becoming an Honors College Peer Coach! Acting as a guide for others has always been an interest of mine, so being able to serve as a PC for Honors College students (rookies and veterans alike!) is very exciting!
  • Service Learning - The HHM (Hunger and Homelessness Movement) at UTSA is my favorite extracurricular project. As someone who has seen firsthand how poverty and tragedy can affect a community, I have a great deal of passion for this organization. Aiding the San Antonio community (while simultaneously making lifelong friends!) is my favorite part of being a Roadrunner! This experience is exceedingly fulfilling, and I recommend joining anyone and everyone who wants to get involved at UTSA and make a difference.
