After helping charter Kappa Alpha Theta at Belmont University, Rachel deeply desired to see Greeks come to know Jesus personally. She began to pray and saw God open doors for starting a Greek ministry at Belmont. Rachel graduated with a degree in Entrepreneurship, and as is probably clear by now, she loves starting new things.
Shortly after helping start the Greek ministry at Belmont, God began to grow her heart for the Vanderbilt Greek system, right down the road from Belmont--with 3,000 Greek students. At this point, she did not know a national ministry existed for Greeks. Through Google her senior year, she found Greek Conference and decided to go and bring friends. At this same time, an InterVarsity staff had just moved to Nashville to begin working at Belmont. She met Rachel and not only supported affiliating the Greek work that had been happening with IV, but encouraged Rachel to consider joining staff to pursue Greek planting work at Vanderbilt and Belmont. When presented with this opportunity, Rachel knew she had found where God was calling her. After a year of training at University of Georgia, she returned to Nashville to plant Greek IV at Vanderbilt and continue helping with Greeks at Belmont.
Rachel is also passionate about seeing Greek InterVarsity spread throughout the entire Southeast, where there are more Greeks than the rest of the country combined, so that sorority and fraternity students come to faith.
In her spare time, Rachel loves to try new foods/restaurants/recipes, take road trips with friends, play with her labradors, and do just about any activity outdoors.
