- Brenda Cruz-Flores, BS
Brenda Cruz-Flores is the Enrollment Services Associate for Southwestern College, as well as a MA Art Therapy and Counseling Student. She earned her BS in Psychology from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. Brenda began providing service to others as a volunteer at the Huntsville Hospitality House through the Art Against the Odds program. The hospitality house gave the families of the incarcerated the opportunity to stay at the house free of cost during their visits. She was able to use her bilingual skills to connect with the Hispanic community that came from across the country. She served as a volunteer through AATO to encourage creative expression in the art room. Brenda also had the opportunity to volunteer with the ATIME2READ program where she worked with children to help them get to their appropriate reading level. Both volunteer experiences reinforced her desire to help others and continue her journey to help other through art.
“I wanted to be an art therapist since I decided I was going to college. As a first-generation student, it was important I pursue a career I was passionate about. After researching multiple schools, I concluded Southwestern was the perfect fit for me. I am excited to be a part of Southwestern College as a student to complete my degree In Art Therapy and Counseling and as a staff member to help students in the admissions process.”
