Professional Vita

I have over 15 years of experience in academia and six (6) years as a self-employed business owner in the financial services industry. My academic roles vary, but primarily are in administration, diversity, minority student recruiting, retention, student development, academic advising, and extra-curricular advising, most, if not all, related to Agriculture. Every position I have held in academia has been a new position that has utilized my strategic, innovative, and creative approach to implementing and establishing new initiatives. I enjoy working with senior management and also helping faculty and staff but I am especially passionate about assisting first-generation students new to post-secondary education.

Teaching & Evaluation

College Teaching

Courses Developed (Texas A&M University)

Romero, E. W., & Lau, M. (2001).  Co-developed “Minority Recruitment and Leadership” course. The class provided information to students who were willing to consider recruiting opportunities to ethnic minorities in high schools.  The class focused on College majors, University information from admissions to financial aid, and taught communication and leadership skills.  The course was initially taught as AGED 485 in the Fall 2001 and was one credit hour.  When the course was taught in the Fall 2002 as AGED 380 it was two credit hours as per student’s recommendations.  The course was developed with no compensation for teaching and was successful based on student surveys.     

Townsend, J., & Romero, E. W., (2003).  Co-developed a “Special Topics in Student Retention” course.  The course was developed for students with academic deficiencies.  The course helped students on academic probation improve/learn study habits and cause positive change in their behavior in order to improve academic achievement.  A colleague was considered professor of record but the class was team-taught.  The course was taught as AGLS 489 and was one credit.
