Friendswood High School
Friendswood's College Connections Advisor
Doreen started her college career at College of the Mainland and after earning an Associate of Arts degree she continued to the University of Houston-Clear Lake for a bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in sociology. Her original plan was to teach middle school to high school students, but she found her niche in advising. She felt it was an opportunity for her to make a difference helping others achieve academic success.
Doreen provides information to students and parents about the college process and assists these students with their applications, testing and registration for College of the Mainland. She also aids students with choosing goals and career interests and educating them on the college culture. After students’ high school graduation, Doreen is available to guide them through the process of completing federal financial aid application and scholarship applications. Doreen is very knowledgeable when it comes to assisting students who want to transfer their College of the Mainland credits for a bachelors’ degree.
Doreen is currently working on her master’s degree in higher education and looks forward to the growth with College of the Mainland.
