Rachel relocated to Maine from Albany, NY and has always had a passion for education and helping others. While she originally pursued a degree in vocal performance in NYC, Rachel realized her heart was in education. Rachel then transferred twice more before landing at Siena College to graduate with a B.A. in History Education.
Rachel felt called to higher education after working for a short time as a high school social studies teacher. She began her journey with The Sage Colleges working as a specialist in the Financial Aid office. Since then, Rachel has held positions in the Student Accounts and Registrar’s Office, as well as managing the Student Services office before moving to the Admissions team as Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions. In August 2017, she was promoted to Associate Director of Graduate Enrollment.
Rachel came to Unity College in November 2017 as a member of the Admissions team, recruiting transfer students. She realized immediately what a unique place Unity College is, and truly enjoys working with Unity College students. In 2018, Rachel transitioned into the Associate Director of Career Services role, with a focus on expanding career support services and resources for Unity’s growing distance education population. Now, Rachel is excited to be making career services a purposeful and vibrant part of the student experience during their time at Unity and beyond as the Director of Career Services.
Rachel earned her M.S. in Higher Education Administration from Southern New Hampshire University in 2018.
