Kertesha Riley

Career Coach


CliftonStrengths: Input, Connectedness, Empathy, Developer, Relator

Hi! I'm Kertesha, the STEM career coach here at UT! In my role, I serve select majors from Arts & Sciences, Education, Health & Human Sciences and Nursing, and anyone who's interested in a pre-health field or healthcare in general.

Having spent a significant portion of my undergraduate career in a STEM field, I truly connect to the passions, interests, and even struggles that scholars in STEM majors sometimes encounter. Maybe your path doesn’t seem typical...that's okay --  know that your major doesn’t equal your career! Meet with me and create your unique STEM career plan today.
