About Rachel Brown '15, M.Ed. '17

I'm a William & Mary alumna who majored in psychology and English, and I liked the university so much that I decided to stick around for graduate school. I completed my master's degree in May 2017, and I'm currently a First-Year Advisor and AUx Instructor at American University.

I enjoy telling stories through blogs, but I also find joy in listening to other people's stories and learning from them. If I'm not working, you'll most likely find me reading a good book with a cup of coffee in hand or strumming my guitar. I hope you enjoy learning about William & Mary through my eyes.
