Ms. Higgins began working at ODA as a Campus Coordinator for E-Prep Woodland Hills in October of 2018. Prior to her start with ODA, Rachel has worked as a youth writing consultant, a transition mentor for high school graduates adjusting to college, and served as an AmeriCorps for City Year, working closely with middle school students. She earned a B.A. in English from the University of Central Florida, with a specific focus on rhetoric and writing for civic engagement. It was that educational track that introduced her to a path of service, and an interest in non-profit work. Rachel is so excited to have recently joined the ODA team and can’t wait to continue her journey with our scholars and families.
Rachel loves books, movies, the outdoors, dogs, family, friends, and tacos.
