Through combining various methods of creating, Rachel is exploring form, interaction, design, and space making. 

Rachel brings a unique and experienced perspective to her work.  Before returning to school to pursue a Master of Architecture, she worked in structural engineering, working in various jobs including in material science and research, working at Boston Public Works, and later as a Bridge Inspector and Engineer in New England.
