Meet the Academic Success Coaches

Emily Garcia

Academic Success Coach

Hello! My name is Emily Garcia. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in NSU’s Marriage and Family Therapy program. I have a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from NSU as well as a B.S. in Family and Child Sciences with a minor in Psychology from Florida State University. I have abundant experience in teamwork, conflict resolution, counseling, and leadership. I have skills that can assist students with time and stress management, finding ways through seemingly hard semesters, working on what works best for a student’s individual study style, and simply making things that are difficult emotionally or academically much more manageable so the student can conquer them. I am so excited to meet all of you this semester and semesters to come! Go Sharks!
