I work with: High School students from Clay County Missouri

Hometown: Neosho, Missouri 

Hobbies: Cooking, thrifting, listening to podcasts 

What you should know about UMKC: All are welcome here! There is a place for everyone at UMKC, and no matter where you come from, you can find your home here. 

What I love about Kansas City: There are so many opportunities in Kansas City – everything from finding internships and job shadowing to trying new barbecue places or coffee shops. 

Advice for your college search: Visit campus, and listen to your instincts! Visiting the school you’re interested in will help you know if it is the right fit for you and if you can visualize yourself there. That was how I chose to come to school at UMKC.
