Personnel Profile

Austin McCoy, Academic Advisor II

Austin McCoy

I graduated from Texas A&M-Kingsville in 2004 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology.  I then decided to go on for my Masters degree and in May 2008 I graduated with my Master of Science degree in Psychology.  During that time I met my wife, Stephanie and in July 2008 we were married.  I also have a stepson and his name is Barrett.  Before working here at the University, I worked out in San Diego, Texas at the Gateway Foundation located at the Glossbrenner Unit where I worked as a substance abuse counselor and developed and maintained clients treatment plans.  I really appreciated having the opportunity to work with offenders to teach them skills to better their lives for themselves and for their families.  It really strengthened me as a counselor and I enjoyed working there.

I enjoy working at Texas A&M University-Kingsville because it gives me the opportunity to work with students and help them to succeed in college. I likes to see my students achieve their goals and it makes me feel good that I had a part in that.  Go Hogs!!
