Continuously Dedicated to Student Success…

I’ve been privileged to be part of a group of people dedicated to the continuous growth of our programs toward student success, artistic excellence and community engagement.  I’ve loved every minute of my 29 years.

Atmosphere, Refreshing Bodies and Minds

I savor walking through the scenic Volker Campus to fill my coffee mug, joining students,  staff, and faculty gathered to refresh their bodies and minds.

Changes & Learning Never Stops

I started here a little bit over eight years ago and find that everyone at UMKC is trying to help you succeed.I got very lucky and got hired in a department where changes never stop,and  learning never stops.I have also learned that if you give a smile it will come back to you as a smile as it is easier to get things done.Working together as a team with other departments is a great reward when the job/ project gets done .

For future employee,it is a great place with good benefits and great coworkers to boot. Have a great day.

Welcoming Atmosphere

One of my favorite parts of the day is walking into the Administrative Building each morning … As I open the main entry door, Joan welcomes me by name. No matter how crazy the day has been leading up to this point (three children under five at home!), Joan’s warm personal greeting and genuine smile brighten my day. How blessed we are at UMKC to have so many Joan’s across our campus!
