Our New Payroll Partners in Columbia

Starting in September, UMSL payroll will now be processed by the MU payroll/operations staff.   We would like to introduce the staff members who will be assisting, and we look forward to our new partnership with MU HR/Payroll Operations.

Amy McKenzie is the Associate Director of MU’s HR/Payroll Operations. She has been with the university since 2002 and with the UM HR office since 2011.  Amy has been working with payroll in some capacity since 1999, and has enjoyed every area she’s been in.

Taylor Halliburton is the HR Assistant that will be responsible for most of the payroll transactions for UMSL. She’s been with MU since 2014 and with MU’s Payroll office since last November, and her customer service skills will be a wonderful asset for our campus.

Kim Jones-Jackson is the Sr. HR Manager and is responsible for CAPS (HR processing), NER and Payroll functions for the MU campus. She’s been with MU since 2004 and with our office since 2016. She always has a smile and the customer’s needs are her focus.
