Hello Tornados!  My name is Aaron Graf, and I am so glad you are here.  I have been with Concordia since 2011, and I can assure you CTX is an excellent place to be!  I have had the opportunity to serve our students here in multiple roles including Admissions Counselor, Student Support Coordinator, teaching Life and Leadership, and now working with our wonderful Student Academic Planning Team.  There are so many amazing people here at Concordia who consistently inspire me.  I also love our beautiful campus.  I completed my Masters of Business Administration degree here at Concordia in 2014.  I truly enjoyed my experience as a student here, and I know you will too!

Hi Tornadoes!  As an alum of Concordia (CLC at the time), I’m excited and so blessed to be in my 25th year of service to this university.  The extraordinary people here create the vibe that I love so much about this place.  My husband James (a 3-time alum) and I have been married 25yrs also, and we enjoy living in Austin and spending time with our families, and our pets.

Some of my random favorite things:  Tex-Mex food, cool shoes, a good classic rock song on the radio, and sunflowers.

Look forward to meeting you!  WHOOSH!

My name is Michael Nelson-Garcia and I am the newest member of the Student Academic Planning team. I am a Concordia graduate (Class of 18) and very excited to be back. My favorite part of Concordia is the amazing community and relationships that are built here. I am originally from Austin but lived in Northern Kentucky for a while until I was able to come back home for college. Some of my favorite things to do are travel, try new foods, and spend time outdoors.  Feel free to come by and say hi, I am always here if you have any questions!

Welcome to Concordia!  I will be your Student Academic Planner while you are here and I look forward to getting to know you.   I fell in love with Concordia when I first came here as a freshman and am very happy to be working here now.  Concordia offers you a great education and the opportunity to build relationship, not only with your classmates, but with your instructors as well.

Hi fellow Tornadoes! My name is Krissica Harper, your newest Student Academic Planner. I am a Waco, Texas native and have recently made Austin my new home. Over the summer, we have prepared and anticipated your arrival with joy and intentionality. In my brief time here, I’ve experienced CTX to be place that is filled with faith and focus,  with transformative and innovate pursuits toward excellence. As you all start another school year, I encourage you to endure and remain committed to your goals; as James 1:4 declares, “Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything”.

I am so grateful and blessed to serve you all, and I can’t wait to see what God does in your life this year!

My name is Sarah Parker; I’m excited to get to know my students and help them succeed in their academic journey here at Concordia! One of my favorite things about Concordia is the campus culture, I love that this campus exudes a true feeling of community and servant-leadership. While I’m not working, I love to explore different running trails around Austin, play with my two Shepherd-mixes, and go to the movies.
