Stacy Chou, Graduate Assistant

I was born in Taiwan and moved to Vancouver, Canada with my family when I was a teenager. I had my BA in Marketing and MBA in General Business. I finished both degrees at UTSA. Right now, I am studying for my Master's degree in Counseling at UTSA and I am expected to finish this program next summer. I love to spend time with my husband and my dog MeiMei when I am free.

In my free time, I like to attend local shows, read, write, and attempt to train my (fairly) new and only pet, Rocco- the most nonchalant Chihuahua, ever. You'll find I'm constantly snacking, and I always love a piping hot cup of coffee or green tea in the morning or evening.
