"The nursing program has a great reputation. When my daughter's pediatrician found out I accepted a nurse faculty role at WITC, her response was, 'Whatever WITC is doing, they are doing really well. The best nursing students I see in the hospital are from WITC.'"

Rachael worked as a nurse for just over 10 years when she decided to make a career change. She wanted to do something that allowed her to use her nursing skills and knowledge that still made a difference in other's lives. She found that what she enjoyed most about working as a nurse was the education aspect. She enjoyed educating patients on the prevention measures to stay healthy, correct medication usage and ensuring that patients understood their diagnosis.
Rachael's teaching philosophy is that all students are unique and need a learning environment that can stimulate physical, mental, emotional and social growth. She strives to create an environment where students can reach their full potential.
