Rachel grew up around the Charlotte area and graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a double major in Global Studies and French. The most transformative time of her life came in the form of her semester abroad in Montpellier, France, where she realized her passion for intercultural education. Determined to return as soon as possible, after finishing her bachelors she spent 1 academic year in France as an English Teaching Assistant. Rachel then joined the Office of Education Abroad in August 2015. She encourages all students to seek out some sort of international experience while at UNC Charlotte, whether it be on campus, in the community, or abroad.
