Presenter Bio

Cindy Ellis

Ms. Ellis has worked with student loan repayment programs in Texas for almost 17 years both at the state and federal level, with 2 different state agencies. This gives her a unique understanding of the programs at each level which allows her to be able to compare and contrast the programs and present them side by side.  After almost 8 years at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), she accepted her current position at the Texas Primary Care Office (TPCO in June 2007.  As part of the collaborative efforts between agencies, Ms Ellis continues to promote the programs administered by the THECB alongside the federal programs: National Health Service Corps (NHSC) and NURSE Corps.
