About our speaker:

Tes is Full Professor, Clinical Director, and a Licensed Psychologist at the University of North Florida. Tes was born and raised in the Philippines, where she learned resilience of spirit and using one’s personal power for transformative teaching and research. She came to the U.S. for Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University at Albany, and she did her internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Utah. She has received several awards such as the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award in 2009 and 2019, yet a priceless compliment was from an external reviewer for her promotion who wrote, “Tes is a faculty member you not only want to promote, but to clone.” Because of her love for the Philippines she conducts research on Philippines poverty’s determinants, its consequences, the influence of cultural values, ways of coping, and effective ways for upward mobility.
