Dana Center Role

Rachel leads the Center’s publishing team, which collaborates with other Center staff to develop and publish content that serves our audiences. The team also consults on all aspects of the publishing lifecycle—from conceptualization and design through review, production, and asset management—and advises on intellectual property matters, including rights and permissions.

Since joining the Center in 1996, Rachel has helped produce countless proposals, reports, collateral and media materials, and products, including the third edition of Texas Safety Standards: Kindergarten Through Grade 12 Science (2006) and the first and second editions of Making the Most of Your Coaching Investment:Tools to Strengthen Your Local Instructional Coaching Program (2010, 2011).

Before Joining the Dana Center

Rachel worked for seven years variously as a fact-checker, researcher, proposal coordinator, and editor for an encyclopedia of Texas history, and for a year at The University of Texas at Austin’s award-winning student paper, The Daily Texan. She has nearly 20 years of experience in proposal development and publishing and holds certificates in fundraising, volunteer management, and nonprofit management.
