Rachel grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and graduated from the University of Michigan in 2017 with a B.A. in English and specializations in creative writing and film.
Her interest in education began during high school, when she spent two years working as an afterschool coordinator at a local elementary school. In college, she volunteered with WeRead, an on-campus organization that helps underserved schools in the metro-Detroit area. She also served as a teaching assistant while living abroad in Barcelona, Spain. Rachel joined Level Up Village as an Account Manager because of its specific emphasis on arts-related STEM curriculum, the dynamic global partnerships it fosters between students from around the world and the subsequent perspective it cultivates in young learners.
In her spare time, Rachel attends hip-hop Vinyasa yoga classes, eats Vietnamese food and reads short stories by Junot Diaz.
