                                            high school with the plan to major in Neonatal Nursing.  After switching majors a few

                                            times, she finally knew what she wanted to do.  After completing her Associate's in

                                            Science and Civil Engineering certificate in May 2017 she transferred to the Citadel to

                                            complete her bachelor's in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

                                            When she's not in school or at work, she's busy raising her 5 year old daughter  

                                            (who currently attends NCUMCLC).  Rachel is originally from Massachusetts, but was

                                            raised in North Charleston, SC.  She is a huge New England Patriots fan who is now

                                            cheering on her daughter in T-Ball.
