Hi there! I’m Rachel the communications and marketing office staffer. I’m from a teeny tiny town called Clatskanie located in rural northwest Oregon right along the Columbia River. There isn’t much to do where I live that doesn’t involve being outdoors, so I’ve spent most of my life enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest. As a Sophomore here at Gonzaga I study Sociology and Communication. I really enjoy being outside the best when I’m with friends or family, and while a freshman GU Outdoors was a great way for me to meet friends who loved being outside too. I hope to see you around the office, campus, and maybe on some trips!
