My name is Rachael Taylor and I'm an Academic Advisor II in the College of Liberal Arts. I was born and raised in the Bay Area in California. I'm a first-generation student and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from California State University- Hayward (now East Bay). A few years later, I earned my Master of Science in Academic Advising from Kansas State University. I started working as an Academic Advisor at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2011. I moved to Reno and began advising for the College of Liberal Arts in 2016.

Fun Facts:

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family. I love advising and helping students achieve their goals!
