She enjoys bringing a smile to everyone’s face, and in her effort to spread joy, she participates in a crazy number of organizations on campus, but enjoys every moment of her hectic, fast-paced schedule! At least three times a week, you can find Rachel outside on the Ultimate Frisbee field tossing the disc and running drills with her teammates in her role as President and Co-captain of TU’s first all-female club sports team. Ultimate has taken her to countless tournaments across the country, creating a network of friends everywhere she travels. In addition, she volunteers as a project leader for an on-campus engineering organization called Make A Difference Engineering, where her group is designing and building a therapy device for children with special needs at a local Tulsa school. Rachel can also be found welcoming prospective and incoming students to campus as she works as both a University Ambassador and Orientation Leader.
As a change-maker, she was selected as a Society of Women Engineering Future Leader (SWEFL) after leading as President of her collegiate section. She continues to be a catalyst for ground-breaking, new ideas and focuses on increasing the opportunities and participation of women in areas where they are currently under-represented. Rachel takes a proactive, solutions-oriented approach to addressing gender inequality in her field of study and life in general.
