Vianet Garza

Vianet Garza serves as the Career Consultant for the College of Health Sciences and for Exploratory students at the Career Connections Center. She is a proud first-generation college student who is passionate about helping other first-gen students succeed in college. She holds a Master of Science in Counseling from the University of North Texas and has 5 years of experience in professional development and career readiness. She holds a counseling license in the state of Texas.

She can help you explore interests, values, personality, skills, and cultural background. That might mean talking about a possible major change, exploring job opportunities, talking about your motivations for pursuing a career,  prepping for an upcoming interview, or reviewing your resume. 

Vianet’s Top 5 StrengthsFinder results are Empathy, Context, Connectedness, Intellection, and Developer, so if you stop by her office it is very likely she will ask for your life story. She’s a Ravenclaw with a dash of Gryffindor and growing up she made it a point to re-read the Harry Potter series at least once a year. During school breaks, you will find her learning about different cultures as she makes it a point to travel to a different country at least twice a year – so far she’s been to 10 countries in 4 continents.

Vianet’s favorite quote is from Martin Luther King Jr. – “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” She believes in using her voice to help others reach their life goals.
