Stefanie Cisneros - Bio

Stefanie currently serves as Career Counselor III for all UTSA Student-Athletes. She graduated from UTSA in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology, and completed a Master of Arts in Community Counseling in 2008, also from UTSA.

Her tenure at the UTSA Career Center spans over 15 years. Following admittance into UTSA's Graduate Counseling program, she moved into a role as Career Counselor I at UTSA's Downtown Campus. After working with UTSA Student-Athletes as part of an internship experience, she formally proposed the creation of a career counseling position specifically addressing the unique needs of student-athletes transitioning from collegiate athletics into the world of work. Through collaboration and support from the Athletic Department as well as the Career Center, the position came to fruition in 2008. In addition to her role as Student-Athlete Career Counselor, Stefanie also teaches an undergraduate counseling course in personal career planning.

Stefanie has had the opportunity to speak to national audiences through presentations at the American Humanics Management Institute, California Association for Counseling and Development Conference, Southern Association of Colleges and Employers Conference, and as a co-presenter at the National Career Development Association's Global Conference.

Current and past professional affiliations include membership in the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA), National Career Development Association (NCDA), Southern Association of Colleges and Employers (SOACE), and the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE).
