Rachael began working for Terra Dotta in August 2013 as a Training Coordinator. She spends her time updating resources in the TD Knowledgebase and working with new employees during their orientations.

Before joining Terra Dotta, Rachael worked with the Duke Talent Identification Program and spent time as a teaching assistant. She graduated from Lenoir Rhyne University with a degree in English and a minor in creative writing.

When she’s not working, Rachael enjoys reading and listening to music in a local coffee shop, exercising in fitness classes, and getting lost in the mountains around Asheville and Boone in North Carolina.

Rachael noted that her favorite part about working at Terra Dotta is “the people I get to be around everyday.”
