Why did you decide to work for TRIO?
TRIO is like family to me. I’m a TRIO alumnus that owes a significant part of my collegiate success to the support I received from the TRIO programs. Working for the Student Support Services program at the University of North Texas I have the chance to learn something new every day from TRIO/SSS students and staff. More importantly, I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to the program that helped me accomplish my professional goals by providing the same support and resources to the UNT TRIO/SSS students.
What is your favorite place on campus? Why?
The new Union—it is a beautiful building that contains everything you need—UNT apparel, bookstore, sushi, bank, and even a Starbucks.
Personal Fun Fact:
Played professional (American) football in Italy after college.
