Interdisciplinary Advisors

Philippe Becerra

I graduated from UNT in August 2003 with a double major in Finance and Logistics.  I moved to Denton in 1996 and have had the opportunity to work for several departments here at UNT:  Police and Traffic, Registrar’s Office, and Center for Distributed Learning.  I joined the College of Education Student Advising Office in October 2003, and am pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the UNT community. In my spare time I enjoy participating in several sports.  I play tennis on occasion, and have played Denton City League Baseball since October 2001.  I am also at every UNT football game, and an occasional basketball game.  I enjoy traveling, and have had the opportunity to visit most of the US and Europe, as well as the Middle East and West Africa.

Greetings and salutations to all the Mean Green faithful.  I have been an academic advisor here in the College of Education for the past 15 years.  I have enjoyed my time at UNT helping students of all ages complete their undergraduate degrees.   Working in the College of Education fits me well since I have five years of experience as a teacher and coach in the Texas public school system.   On a more personal level I am an avid college football and basketball fan - "Go Mean Green!" - and I love the outdoors particularly river rafting and fishing or just camping out in New Mexico.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from UNT in May of 2008 and joined the COE Student Advising Office in February of 2013.  

I enjoy spending time outside: hiking, camping, and cheering on the Texas Rangers & FC Dallas. When not scoring home runs for my softball and kickball recreational teams – I like to read, paint and travel with loved ones.

This Oklahoma girl became an “Honorary Texan” in 2014, after receiving a B.S. in Health and Human Performance with an emphasis in Clinical Wellness in 2012 from Northeastern State University.  Having worked in Higher Education since 2010, I joined the MEAN GREEN family in 2014 and moved to the COE-SAO to be an Academic Advisor in January 2015. Continuing my education, I  joined the UNT alumni as I finished an M.S. Kinesiology with an emphasis on the Psychosocial Aspects of Sport and Exercise in 2016.  On a more personal level, I met my amazing husband during my internship with the NSU football team; so the saying “Faith, Family, & Football” is really the best way to describe my life!  Outside of advising, I love being a mom, spending time with my family, traveling, crafting, being an avid sports enthusiast, and trying new things.
