TAMUQ Support Office
The Texas A&M at University at Qatar Support Office (TSO) serves as the hub of communication between the College Station and Qatar campus. TSO facilitates the exchange of students between campuses, assists in building relationships between campus entities, and represents the Qatar campus in various events and meetings as needed. The office supports the mission of the Qatar campus in College Station and strives to enhance the College Station campus’s knowledge of resources and opportunities in Qatar. The business operations within the office support the Qatar campus through cooperative work and as a training facilitation resource, attending trainings and events and relaying information to Qatar staff that, due to financial limitations and time zone differences, cannot regularly participate. Additionally, the office serves as a hub for visiting leadership, faculty, and staff to hold meetings, have a proper workspace, and to seek support, removing obstacles to ensure productive and effective visits to the College Station campus.

Meet the Team
Misty Davis, Program Manager
My name is Misty Davis, and I serve as the Texas A&M University at Qatar Support Office Program Manager.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University in May 2014, majoring in Animal Science and minoring in Agricultural Economics. During my undergraduate career, I had the oppurtunity to study abroad in Brasil at the Universade de Sao Paulo in Pirassununga. Initially, my goal was to learn Brazilian Portuguese while completing academic credits instructed in Portuguese focused on animal nutrition, beef cattle and dairy sciences, and agricultural economics. However, my experience quickly morphed into more than just academics. The "other" education that I obtained while in Brazil showed me how much more there was in the world to explore and understand. The friends, professional connections, and experiences I gained while in Brazil led me to pursue my Masters of Agriculture in Agricultural Development.
During my Masters studies, I interned in Rwanda for the Summer of 2015, assiting with an all-girls high school agricultural program. After my internship experience, I was contracted to return and serve as the Value Added Center Director. While in this position, I performed various roles from student program development, accounting, crop and livestock management, and food product development, production, marketing, sales, and distribution. I returned to the United States in August 2016 to complete my Masters degree while also working full-time at a veterinary clinic as a veterinary technician.
Following my Masters graduation in December 2016, I served as a Teacher Program Coordinator for a non-profit teacher and intern sponsoring agency in San Diego, CA, processing J-1 and J-2 visas for visiting teachers from around the world. I traveled throughout the United States to provide schools with support and teacher training sessions.
In March of 2017, I joined Halliburton Engineering Global Programs in the Texas A&M University College of Engineering. During my time there, I aided with faculty-led program development, management, and marketing, administration of the International Engineering Certificate and Student Ambassadors program, and adminstrative duties for the Qatar campus.
The Texas A&M University at Qatar Support Office (TSO) was refounded as a stand-alone office in September 2019. As the Program Manager, my goal is to to create a hub for both College Station and Qatar faculty, staff and students to connect, collaborate, and innovate together. In October 2019, I began my Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership in Higher Education. My research is focused on increasing student mobility between TAMU and TAMUQ.
My team and I are very excited to repersent TAMUQ and look forward to working with people across the university that are interested in learning more about TAMUQ. If you ever have any questions, please reach out to us via email or by scheduling an appointment.
Thanks and Gig'em,
Sausha-Rae Brown, Lead Student Technician
Howdy! My name is Sausha-Rae Brown, and I am the Lead Student Technician.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University in May 2020, majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering and minoring in Cyber Security and Mathematics. During my undergraduate career, I had the opportunity to to study abroad in Mexico, India, Singapore, and to participate in a research internship in Chile. My experiences abroad cultivated a deep love for traveling and experiencing new cultures. There is so much of this world I have yet to explore and learn about.
My love for travel influenced me to become a Halliburton Engineering Global Program Ambassador my sophomore year and gave me an opportunity to not only mentor fellow classmates but also continue to learn about other cultures.
In July of 2019, I joined the Halliburton Engineering Global Programs in the Texas A&M University College of Engineering as a student worker. During my time there, I aided with the remodeling of the website, student recruiting, and event coordination.
When the Texas A&m University at Qatar Support Office (TSO) became a stand-alone office, I moved with the office and became the Lead Student Technician. My main focus is aiding student programming and the Qatar Student Ambassador Program.

It has truly been a pleasure working in TAMUQ Support Office! I have the chance to work with wonderful people each day, and the office is always so welcoming. I also enjoy the opportunity to broaden my understanding regarding the culture and customs of Qatar and the greater Middle East region, which is so different from what I was brought up with in childhood, as well as what I have been exposed to in the United States.I find myself quite interested in the daily lives of those who live in or are from Qatar, so it’s been fascinating gleaning little pieces of information about Qatar and the Qatar campus since I joined TAMUQ. It is always such a pleasure to talk to those currently based in or from Qatar, whether they are students, faculty, or staff. My time in the support office has definitely been eye-opening and enjoyable.
