Rachel Kainer

Assistant Editor

Rachel works on the College Readiness team as an assistant editor, providing revisions and comments to students’ essays and résumés. Her goal is to help students position themselves in a way that makes them stand out to a college admissions board. She coordinates with the other members of the College Readiness team in order to provide the highest quality outcome for the students.

Minus a few years in Dallas when she was young, Rachel was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She attended Cypress Woods High School, and then headed back to Dallas to attend Southern Methodist University (SMU). There she earned a B.A. in Advertising with a specialization in Digital Media Strategy and Minors in Psychology and Sport Management. Rachel was hired as an assistant editor in May of 2018.

Rachel has always had a passion for writing. She participated in newspaper all four years of high school, holding two editor positions, and continued to do freelance writing throughout college. In her time away from the office, Rachel enjoys re-watching or reading “Harry Potter,” going on coffee dates with her friends, and spending time with her family.
