Before joining AFPE, Rachel graduated from Langley High School in McLean, Va, where she was an active member of the school and club swim teams and earned the scholar athlete award multiple seasons. Her extracurricular activities included several choir organizations, both the Math and National Honor Societies, and serving as a Math teacher’s assistant. Her senior year, she orchestrated a self-run donation drive for the Children’s National Medical Center, successfully collecting over 300 stuffed animals to give comfort to patients at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
Currently a junior at George Mason University, Rachel has volunteered for the past year in the child pediatric section at INOVA Fairfax hospital. Her recent accomplishments include achieving a 4.0 in her most recent spring semester of 2014. She continues to be a dedicated coach for the swim program, Norman Swimming. As a member of the Chi Omega Fraternity, she assists in numerous fundraisers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Rachel looks forward to graduating with a Bachelor’s of science degree in Health Administration, and we are excited to benefit from her ambition and enthusiasm this summer at AFPE.
