My name is Chrysta Grebing, and I am a freshman admissions counselor at Concordia University Texas. My territory for CTX is Dallas, San Antonio, and local regions. I was born and raised in the Midwest and have had six different addresses in my past ten years of life. It’s no wonder that I love adventure and new experiences. I cannot wait to connect with you and share some of my favorites places to explore and yummy food to devour in the Austin area.


Cindy Villanueva
Director of Business Partnerships | 512-313-5011 

After graduating with my Concordia MBA, I knew I wanted to teach here. And after working as an adjunct professor for two years, I knew I wanted to work here. Concordia is a fantastic place where we really do find a way to coalesce faithful devotion, academic rigor, and fun! Whether I’m meeting with a CEO to discuss a partnership or teaching business ethics to a classroom full of bright minds, Concordia is where I know I’m called to be.

Lisa Maher, M.Ed
MBA Admissions Counselor | 512-313-4613

As a life-long learner, working on a university campus is really great. But what’s even better is helping others realize that getting a graduate degree is something they can achieve. I speak with people every day who are considering going back to school because they want to start a business, get a promotion, open doors to upper management, or learn new ways of thinking and doing things. While I earned my master’s degree from Concordia (’10), I was supported by a team of people dedicated to my academic success. Today, I am part of that team!

It’s impossible to tell my story without Concordia being a part of it. As a student, it was very much a second chance and a blessing. As an alumnus its home. My hope is that it can be a similar experience for you. So, if you ever need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out whether by phone, email, text, carrier pigeon, etc.; I’m here to help. I’m looking forward to connecting and bringing you into the Concordia family!

I had the pleasure of graduating from the Concordia MBA program in 2014. Shortly before I graduated, I was offered the opportunity to join the Concordia Admissions Team. I am now able to fulfill my passion of working in higher education by serving students every day. I value the opportunity to help others find their vocation and honor Concordia’s mission of developing Christian leaders!
