Rachael joined the Enrollment Management team in November 2013 as an admissions counselor, having most recently worked in admissions at Gwynedd Mercy University outside Philadelphia. A native of Monroeville and graduate of Serra Catholic High School, she was excited to return home and enjoys helping students realize their dream of a Penn State education. She currently works with first-year students and student-athletes at all stages.

Rachael earned a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame in 2011, with a double major in Arabic and International Peace Studies. She will graduate from Penn State in May 2017, with a Master’s degree in Community and Economic Development. When she isn’t working on homework, she enjoys  spending time with her family and spoiling her godchildren! She is an amateur home baker, a huge fan of fiction audiobooks, and is training for  her first half marathon.
