As a GVSU alum, Rachel is very excited to be back at GVSU, assisting students, faculty, and employers with experiential education initiatives. Having experienced first hand how valuable an internship is, she thoroughly enjoys working with the campus community to help students gain meaningful work experiences. In addition to working with internship programming, Rachel also assists students seeking general career advice, such as resume assistance, practice interviewing and job search strategies.
Prior to returning to GVSU, Rachel served as the Student Employment Advisor/Counselor at The University of North Carolina Greensboro's Career Services Center. She earned her BA in Organization Communications from Western Michigan University in 2004 and her M.Ed from Grand Valley State University in Adult and Higher Education with an emphasis in College Student Affairs Leadership in 2006.
