Alexandra "Ale" Garcia
Ale began her studies in 2006, then in 2009 she became part of the Office of University Relations as a Student Assistant. In this capacity, she became a reliable support to the office Staff at events and in the overall operation of the office.
After graduating from UTEP in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, she went on to work off-campus for 1 year, before coming back to begin her graduate studies. Almost immediately, she joined Union Services as their Event Services Coordinator directly overseeing what was formerly known as Union Programs; which eventually along with her and the Union Programs’ team, became part of the Office of Student Life. In May of 2015, she received her Master of Business Administration.
After leaving her Student Assistant position in 2011, Ale was able to go back to her professional roots as she rejoined the team at University Relations in November of 2015. In her current role, Ale has led a variety of events while slowly transitioning into taking over Conference Services.
She firmly believes in the impact students have in the community, and with over 6 years of working experience in higher education, Ale enjoys being a mentor to other working students. Her goal is to be an important, contributing element of the University's mission and vision.
