Gabriela Mora

M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health

First class start date: September 2016

Anticipated Graduation date: August 2018

Assistant Manager, Estee Lauder

My name is Gabriela and I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and three-year-old son. I received my undergrad over a decade ago and have been working in the beauty industry for just as long. I found myself wanting to change my career path and pursue a graduate degree to help me get into the counseling profession. Lamar University offered just what I needed with the flexible distance learning schedule and comprehensive Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. I am excited to realize my dreams in becoming a licensed professional counselor and learning all the program has to offer.
