Lorena A Rodriguez
My name is Lorena Rodriguez, and I am currently an MEd Candidate in the Program for Higher Education Leadership. I look forward to using those skills to become an even stronger higher education practitioner. Each day I have the privilege of working with undergraduate students as an Associate Academic Advisor in the College of Natural Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. I am passionate about motivating and empowering students to reach their personal and professional goals. I graduated from UT Austin in 2016 with B.A. in Psychology and Health Society. As an undergraduate student, I was involved as an orientation advisor, mentor for the Gateway scholars program, and officer for my residence hall. All of those rewarding experiences inspired me to pursue higher education full time. Outside of work, I am passionate about reading memoirs and traveling. I have been around the United States, United Kingdom, Portugal, Sweden, Spain as well as a study abroad in South Africa.
