Rachel received her BA in English literature from the College of William & Mary (2005). After college, she taught English as a Foreign Language abroad for 7 years, which sparked her interest in the field of Linguistics. In 2014, she received her MA in Applied Linguistics from Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC), where she researched issues in second language acquisition, and specifically cross-linguistic phonetic perception. 
She is currently a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Georgia where she focuses mainly on sociophonetics, prosody, and neurolinguistics. Her current research projects include an acoustic look at Southern speech, as well as an exploration of prosody (e.g. intonation) processing in the brain.
