Rachel comes to Chapel Hill from Philadelphia, where she earned her Ph.D. in Media & Communication from Temple University, focusing on using media and the humanities as vehicles for social change.  While cinema has been her primary focus, with a  background in independent film production as well as an MFA in Film Studies from Boston University and BFA in Film Production from New York University, she is an art lover at heart and looks forward to planning exciting events across the humanities.  She lives in Chapel Hill with her husband, two children, and dog.
