Pat Machts, born and raised in San Antonio, has worked at UTSA for eleven years, and a majority of that time has been spent assisting the Tomás Rivera Center team. Without Pat, many student workers would find themselves without their paychecks! Amazingly Pat, among many other duties, is responsible for completing payroll for over 170 student workers including tutors, SI leaders, and work-study students. Along with being a staff member at UTSA, Pat is also a student. She is a senior psychology major hoping to one day use her degree to work with young children. When not at work or at school, Pat spends much of her time with her wonderful grandchildren. She has four granddaughters, a grandson, and one great granddaughter! Along with keeping active with her grandchildren, Pat also enjoys reading and gardening.
