Associate Director for Administration and Student Affairs

Rachel is the associate director for administration and student affairs for the Master in Interdisciplinary Data Science (MIDS) program.

Prior to coming to MIDS, I worked at Fidelity Investments as an IT Project Manager. After 12 years, I decided a change in my career was necessary. For the next eighteen months, I toggled between a full-time job and school to be able to ultimately attain a Duke University Weekend Executive MBA from the Fuqua School of Business. After graduating, Dr. Jana Schaich Borg gave me the opportunity to be able to successfully pivot into academic Program Management where I am currently helping MIDS students to live out their career aspirations.
