Raised in Le Mans, Rachel moved to Munich, Paris, and Sao Paulo before landing to St. Louis in February 2017 for an internship. She has a Master's in Urban Policies from SciencesPo Paris and works for a community development non-profit in St. Louis City.

A recent addition to the Alliance Française team, she loves teaching languages – English and French – and engaging her students in cultural and political conversations. Rachel is also the project coordinator for City/Cité St. Louis 2018, a cook at a local restaurant, and a passionate learner of community building crafts.

She will be an adjunct professor and operate the Centre Francophone at Webster University during the first semester of the 2018-2019 school year.
