Rachel grew up in 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 Bachelor of Arts in History Education.
Rachel felt called to higher education after working 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 is finishing her Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration with Southern New Hampshire University.
Rachel truly enjoys working with Unity College students and is thrilled to be making a positive impact on their experience both during their time at Unity and their plans post-graduation as a member of the Career Services team.
In her spare time, Rachel enjoys hiking and kayaking, walking her dog Benji, as well as cooking, singing, and acting. She and her husband Will have long had the dream of moving to Maine for the beautiful landscape and friendly people. They’re excited to be calling Maine home!
