Audio: Rachel De Los Reyes: Hi Walden! My name is Rachel De Los Reyes and I'm a third-year PhD student in higher education leadership and policy. I'm coming from California, Sacramento California, and I currently work at the University of California Davis also known as UC Davis. And I am a senior academic advisor to the Dean of Graduate Studies. I love my job because I get to advocate for students every day by advising faculty and the dean on the needs of students.

My research topic is related to STEM [science, technology, engineering, math) and retention. I'm studying what makes students successful or not successful in STEM.

On my free time I like to spend time with my two daughters I have a 14-year-old and an 8-year-old and so anytime, anytime outside of school and work I try to dedicate to them.

I look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you here at Walden and again congratulations on starting your doctoral journey!
