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.
Howdy! My name is Tori Jackson, and I am the Coordinator of the GLBT Resource Center, in the Offices of the Dean of Student Life. I grew up in Oakville Ontario Canada, and Chatham New Jersey. I graduated from Canisius College in Buffalo New York with a Bachelors of Arts in History and a Masters in College Student Personnel Administration. I spent a few years as a Resident Hall Director at the University of Binghamton and at The State University of New York College at Oneonta. I am excited to be a part of the Texas A&M family and be able to work for an office that strives to support all students.
Howdy! My name is Eniola Lasisi, and I am a Management Information Systems graduate student. I am originally from Lagos, Nigeria, where I was born and raised, but I have lived in Atlanta, Georgia for the last 7 years. After graduation, my goal is to work for a technology company as a Product Manager or Product Analyst. I decided to work for the GLBT Center because I genuinely believe that everyone deserves to feel safe and supported on campus, and I wanted to be part of a department that actively works to achieve that. I hope to be able to provide support and advocacy for all those who need it during my time here! I spend my free time reading James Patterson novels or catching up on the 10,000 shows I watch on Netflix and Hulu.
Howdy! My name is Rebekah Johnson and I am a Graduate Assistant here at the GLBT Resource Center! I was raised in Southern California, where I received my Bachelor's degrees in Political Science and International Studies from California State University Long Beach. I came to Texas A&M to earn my Master's in International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service. Throughout my work experience in undergrad, I have been honored to be a part of events that fight for equality, such as the Pride Flag raising at the U.S. Embassy Luxembourg and supporting LGBTQ+ legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. I am excited to continue this fight for love and equality in the Aggie Community, and look forward to meeting each and everyone one of you!
Coleman Posey (he/him), Student Employee
Howdy! My name is Coleman Posey (he/him) 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 Employee
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!

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!
