Hello! My name is Alisha Harrison and I am the Admissions Counselor for the Office of Graduate Admissions here at the University of St. Thomas. I have been a Houston resident for 10 years and I enjoy what my adopted city has to offer. I earned a B.S. in Health Studies with a minor in Business Administration and my MBA/MHA in Business Administration and Healthcare Administration, but education has always been an interest a passion of mine.
After working in healthcare for a number of years, I had the opportunity to move into the Education Arena and I have never looked back. I enjoy working with students helping them reach their educational goals. I also enjoy seeing how education works by instilling a sense of Life Long learning and expanding of horizons from exposure to social and cultural interaction.
I am happy to be a part of the Graduate Admissions team and extremely proud to work at a university where they stand by their motto of “Educating Leaders of Faith and Character.”
I am here to help you move through the Graduate Admissions Application process as smoothly as possible. Please contact me if you have any questions about our graduate programs. I look forward to assisting you.
