I joined the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in September of 2019 as a Diversity Education Program Manager. My role as a Program Manager includes creating content for programs, facilitating workshops and training, overseeing the marketing, and of course building relationships with the students and campus partners! Coming to the University of Houston was a goal I set for myself for several reasons. I wanted the opportunity to work with innovative higher education professionals at an institution where the mission and values reflect mine and a student demographic that reflects the surrounding city, but most importantly I wanted to be in an environment where I can be my authentic self. I welcome the challenge of serving a large university community and continuing to grow as a young professional. Go Cougars!
