Rachel is originally from Overland Park, Kansas. She is a proud graduate of Pittsburg State University (Go Gorillas!) in Pittsburg, Kansas, where she pursued a degree in Art.
She was also a Resident Assistant for a year and a half, an Assistant Residence Hall Director for a year and president of the Residence Hall Assembly (RHA). During her time as an undergrad, she got involved in every student affairs opportunity she could find, from working camps and conferences during the summer to helping to plan new student staff hiring.
Rachel is currently the Residence Coordinator of Farris Honors Hall and is pursuing her Master’s in College Student Personnel and Administration. Rachel is very excited to be a Bear, and cannot wait to be a part of making a difference in the lives of students and staff here at UCA!
