Lorena Juanez
Admissions Counselor

Contact Info
5000 Holmes Rd.


I work with: High school students from Jackson County outside of KCMO public and private schools
Hometown:  Kansas City, MO

Hobbies: I love to grill, host get-together, watch sports games such as soccer and football. I love coffee, sunset/sunrises, and most definitely love to travel.

What you (students) should know about UMKC: UMKC has a large, diverse student population where there are over 79 countries represented!

What I love about Kansas City: I love the LatinX community in KC. It is ever growing and there is always a fun new ice cream shop (paleteria) or bakery (panaderia) to go to!

Advice as you (students) start your college search: Do not be afraid to ask questions! As a first-generation college student myself, a lot of the "obvious" answers to questions were not so obvious to me. Advocate for yourself and ask, ask, ask!
