Curriculum Vitae

Assistant Professor of Practice - Accounting

Rachel spent the last ten years in public accounting working predominantly with high-net-worth taxpayers and business owners at firms in both Milwaukee and Chicago. After earning her MST in 2019, Rachel knew eventually she would want to teach. The door opened in 2021, and Rachel now teaches tax to juniors and seniors. Her biggest challenge in the classroom is making the area of tax digestible to students since it can often be very complex and nuanced. She is most excited to get to know students outside of class and being a sounding board as they navigate internships, and life after Marquette including balancing career, life, and the CPA exam.


Bachelor of Science – Accounting and Information Technology from Marquette University

Master of Science – Taxation from Northeastern University
