Academic Advisor

Phone: 816-235-1710



Emily joined the Student Services team in December of 2016 as an Academic Advisor for the Pre-Licensure BSN and Accelerated BSN programs.  She now advises students in the RN-BSN program as well.  Her duties include advising current and prospective students on which courses to take and when to take them, participating in various recruitment activities on UMKC’s campus and in the KC Metro area, and guiding students through the process of applying to UMKC’s nursing programs.  You may have met Emily at an Information Session or UMKC Preview Day already!  Emily has a bachelor’s degree in Economics and, despite the foggy connection between economics and nursing, she has found a genuine passion for helping students interested in nursing find their best fit program and success in that program!  In her free time, Emily enjoys concerts, finding the best happy hour specials, and Thai food.
