Rachel has worked in higher education since 2014, following close to a decade in journalism. Finding her passion at the intersection of these two fields, she values authentic communications that reach audiences where they are—online, in person or in print—in order to bring the life-changing power of education into view. At UAFS, she uses her journalistic appreciation of transparent, honest communication to foster trust and build community among UAFS students, employees, donors and alumni. She has implemented strategic advancement and monitoring of the institution’s print, broadcast and social media presence; instituted comprehensive reporting processes; and developed a responsive social media policy and student engagement strategy that has earned industry accolades.
