Rachel earned a B.S. in Natural Resource and Environmental Management from Ball State University in 2015. After completing her degree, she spent 3 years as a Data Manager and Coordinator for the Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow Program through the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation. During her work for the CLfT program, she gained exposure to human dimension research through her work with program evaluation and is interested in the relationship between stakeholder values and wildlife agencies. This exposure and insight led her to MSU. She is a master’s student working with Dr. Shawn Riley evaluating the Changing Value Orientations of Wildlife Professionals in the United States.
