Biography

Rachael Forker joined the GWSB Office of Undergraduate Programs & Advising in November 2015. An avid sports fan hailing from the Nutmeg State (Connecticut), she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Urban & Community Studies and Political Science from the University of Connecticut (#GoHuskies). After working as an Admissions Representative for UConn, Rachael moved to London to complete her Master’s Degree in City Planning at King’s College London.

Upon her return from the UK in 2013, she joined Connecticut’s first craft distillery as the Director of Marketing. Covering events, promotions, digital and traditional marketing, and social media, Rachael learned how to build a consumer brand from the ground up.

Rachael brings a unique perspective on event planning, public speaking, entrepreneurship, and marketing to the Program Coordinator role at GWSB.
