UMA Announces New Director of EAGLE

Emily Robbearts
Director of EAGLE Accreditation

UMA is pleased to welcome Emily Robbearts as incoming Director of EAGLE Accreditation. Robbearts, who joined UMA on November 2, will work with current Director Jill Myers to ensure a smooth transition as Jill ends her successful tenure with UMA.

Emily comes to UMA from her previous position as the Director of Agency Impact for Chaddock, a role that involved oversight of marketing and strategic communications for the Chaddock Family of Organizations. Located in Quincy, Illinois, Chaddock is an internationally recognized leader in the treatment of children experiencing the psychological and emotional effects of significant abuse, neglect, and trauma.

During her tenure at Chaddock, Emily assisted with the agency’s EAGLE accreditation survey, served as a peer reviewer on three EAGLE site visits, and participated on the EAGLE Marketing Task Force.

“Embarking on this new journey with UMA is a fitting continuation of my lifelong relationship with Chaddock,” Emily said. “I am excited that I will be able to stay in touch with my Chaddock colleagues through the work with UMA and EAGLE.”

Emily is also a former Chaddock Board member. Prior to joining Chaddock in 2017, she spent six years on staff with the United Way of Adams County, serving three years as its Executive Director, and worked for the Blessing Health System for nearly 18 years in public relations, communications and medical practice management. Emily has a Bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and a Master’s in Business Administration from William Woods University.

A lifelong Methodist, Emily is a member and former chair of the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce Diversity and Inclusion Committee and is President Elect of the Rotary Club of Quincy.

Please join us in welcoming Emily to her new role at UMA.
