University Registrar at UTRGV

It is with great enthusiasm and hope that I accept the nomination to serve on the Nominations and Elections Committee or AACRAO. This is a tremendous opportunity to impact higher education presently and in the future. Strategic and thoughtful consideration of our future leaders in higher education is especially important given the current economic, political, and social climate. Authentic leadership, appreciation for diversity, and broad inclusivity must be integral to the directions and priorities that AACRAO will set going forward.

Having served in several positions for the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, including as Past-President, and having served on the executive committee of the Southern Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions officers, I am well aware of the commitment, passion, and energy it takes to successfully fulfill these responsibilities.

I truly welcome any questions or discussions regarding my plans to carry out these N&E responsibilities with integrity and compassion. I can be contacted at or reached at (956) 665-3650. Thank you for your time and consideration.
