Teysha worked as a graduate researcher with Dr. Adrienne Carter-Sowell R. Carter-Sowell in the Diversity Sciences Research lab from 2012-2014.

As a result of winning this award, Bowser received complimentary registration for the SPSP annual meeting and she presented research results during a poster session on a collaborative project.

After Texas A & M, Teysha continued to build on the record of success she established at TAMU.  After receiving her Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University, Teysha enrolled in the doctoral program in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of Nevada-Reno, where she was elected to serve as the 2018-2019 Graduate Representative for the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES), and where she successfully defended her dissertation in April 2020.
