Hey ya’ll! My name is Tesha Byrne, and I am the Southeast Regional Recruiter for the Office of Admissions at George Mason University. I was born, raised, and spent the majority of my life in Northern Virginia, right next to Mason, though now I live in Columbia, South Carolina. I attended Mason where I earned both my Bachelors in Communication and my Masters in Education. While working on my undergraduate degree, I had the opportunity to live on campus, participate in the Greek life, and work on the yearbook staff. As a first generation college student, I recognized that Mason as able to offer an amazing number of opportunities to help me grow professionally, academically, and personally.
Prior to coming on board at Mason I was a high school teacher, an academic advisor, and enrollment specialist; all areas in which I have worked to help students find their best fit for their educational goals. In fact, most of my career has been spent in education, which isn’t surprising because I am passionate about helping others succeed.
As the Southeast Regional Recruiter, I will be traveling all over North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee to share my Mason experiences and help others find their place in the Mason Nation. I look forward to sharing my excitement of George Mason and the D.C. area with you. I’m here to help you with any of your college search questions. Go Patriots!
