Transfer Coordinator


Transfer students make up almost half of each incoming class each year at UMKC. You have a home here at UMKC! Also, we have study abroad programs to over 60 countries. Make sure to take advantage of this life-changing opportunity available to UMKC students.

There are always things to do and it feels like a home away from home. Also….GO CHIEFS!

Be your own advocate and exhaust all resources available to you. Your college experience is crucial to your professional and personal development and establishes your trajectory for post-graduation. Staff members and Faculty members are here to support you through the application process, while enrolled, as well as post-graduation. Soak in these transformative years and build a life-long support system of friends, faculty, and staff members! Be proud of yourself and acknowledge all accomplishments and challenges along the way as learning

I love writing, listening to music, spending time with family, exercising and practicing my Spanish! experiences
