From the Candidate:


Through my past eight years in financial aid, I have continuously advocated for students and families to achieve their educational and career goals. I have served on countless committees that all have one goal in mind: student success. I am honored and excited to be nominated for the TASFAA board. My goal is to represent my colleagues and serve the TASFAA membership throughout the state of Texas. I am passionate about helping others and giving back to the TASFAA community by guiding different initiatives such as the Regional Training Committee and the TASFAA Fall Conferences that I currently serve on. Being elected to the TASFAA board will allow me to advocate for TASFAA members across the state and help develop the wonderful professionals in our membership.
