Rachel is a dynamic and professional presenter and has been an invited speaker to groups that range from Women in Science Days for 8th-grade girls to a 10,000+ seat conference hall filled with geospatial professionals and students at the Esri User Conference (see the full video!).
Rachel specializes in speaking on Science and Technology topics, bridging gaps between disciplines (usually technology and science) or communities, leadership, project management, female empowerment, and how to succeed in male-dominated environments.
This year, she has discussed strategic planning with a large team at a Federal agency, she has taught workshops on Project Management for the South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity, and she has advised college women on strategies to succeed in the corporate world. She was invited to speak by the South Dakota Municipal League at two statewide events.
