Our staff members strive to be advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and ally community by facilitating collaborative relationships and communication between the student, faculty, staff, and the broader Bryan/College Station community.
Howdy! My name is Heather Wheeler, and I am an Assistant Director in the Offices of the Dean of Student Life with purview over the GLBT Resource Center and the Women's Resource Center. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but call Schertz, Texas my hometown. Since graduating from Texas A&M University, I have worked as an investigator for Child Protective Services, the Director of Outreach for the Sexual Assault Resource Center, and in the Women's Resource Center. I am excited to be a part of the GLBT Resource Center team and to continue pursuing my passion for advocating for others and working to eliminate barriers to equity.
Our Coordinator position is currently vacant while we conduct a search in spring 2019.
Howdy! My name is Olivia Corneau and I am a Graduate Assistant for the resource center. I was born in Savannah, Georgia, but call Rockwall, Texas my hometown. I graduated from Texas A&M University in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Science double-major in Sociology and Psychology, and a minor in Women and Gender Studies. I am in my last semester of graduate school, currently pursuing a Master of Science in Educational Administration with a concentration in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education (SAAHE) at Texas A&M University. Through my work in the resource center, I am able to fulfill my passion of educating and supporting students, by creating more equitable spaces for all Aggies. Outside of work, you can most likely find me snuggled up with my Great Pyrenees, Rudder, and watching Hulu or Netflix.
Howdy! I am Samantha Ruelas, a Graduate Assistant for the GLBT Resource Center. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a double minor in Biology and Women’s Studies from Texas State University in May of 2017. I was an Advocate at the National Domestic Violence Hotline before attending Texas A&M to pursue my Master of Public Service and Administration degree from the Bush School of Government. I feel such gratitude to work at the resource center, promoting equity, safety, and support to our A&M GLBT community.
Coleman Posey, Student Worker
Howdy! My name is Coleman Posey and I am from the small town of Burnet, Texas. I am currently pursuing a B.A. in Communication with a minor in Business Marketing. My goal is to become a large scale Corporate Event Coordinator. Upon coming to TAMU, I was under the impression that I would not fit in. With the help from some friends, I jumped head first into the community and was overwhelmed with the love and support that I received from those around me. I am excited to be working for the GLBT Resource Center because I want to have the opportunity to give the same love and support back. I am proud to be part of this community and I am proud to be an Aggie! I hope to continue to help others on their journey and I am excited for what this year has in store for us!
Erik Fontaney, Student Worker
Howdy! My name is Erik Fontaney Jr., and I am a student worker for the Resource Center! I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and came to Texas A&M to pursue a B.S. degree in Engineering. As of now, I am debating between going on to the Biomedical or Computer/ Electrical route, but whichever I choose I know I want to work with electronics. Whether that be for a technology giant like Apple or Google, or working with a hospital to incorporate the use of technology in everyday operations/surgeries. I began working for the GLBT Resource Center to get involved with the queer community on campus and give the same support to Aggies that was given to me! A fun fact about me is two of my favorite TV shows are Ru Paul's Drag Race and Big Brother, which I am always down to talk about or have watch parties. Other than that I look forward to meeting people and having a fantastic year at the Resource Center!
Espyn Burks, Student Worker
Howdy! My name is Espyn Burks, and I am a student worker here at the GLBT Resource Center! I am from the Southeast Texas area and am about 30 minutes away from the Texas-Louisiana border. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication with minors in Psychology and English as well as a certificate in Health Communication. If all goes as planned, I will be graduating in spring 2021! After graduation, I plan to attend graduate school for School Psychology, which will allow me to exercise my passion for working with children with intellectual disabilities. I would also like to receive my Licensed Professional Counselor certification, so that I may work with children and families in a traditional counseling setting as well. I am proud of my work here at the GLBT Resource Center because I believe in fighting for equality for all, and I am passionate about spreading love and support to the queer community here in Aggieland! When I am not studying or working in the Resource Center, you can typically find me reading, baking, and watching my all-time favorite shows: Friends and Modern Family!

On my free time, you can find me playing pool, hanging out with friends, or playing guitar. I look forward to contributing to our fellow Aggies!
