Rachel is a recent graduate of Goucher College with a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies. During a term of study in Copenhagen, Denmark, Rachel became fascinated by the infrastructure that supported bicycling, and upon her return to the US she focused on learning about the intersection of transportation and sustainability. Her senior thesis involved using GIS to investigate bicycle safety in Towson, Maryland. She also interned as a GIS analyst, gaining project experience in traffic impact studies, campus planning, corridor studies, crash data analysis, transit planning, and bicycle/pedestrian planning. Rachel looks forward to expanding her knowledge in the transportation profession by pursuing a wide range of operations, safety, and planning projects. An East Coast native, Rachel is excited to experience the skiing, hiking, and biking that Idaho has to offer.
