Rachel Olsen

Education Coordinator

Rachel Olsen joined the Willa Cather Foundation as a tour guide in October 2017 and became the Education Coordinator in 2020. A former college English teacher, she enjoys doing her part to preserve Cather’s rich literary history. In addition to giving tours, Rachel allocates additional time to assisting with preparations for conferences and seminars, coordinating the virtual author series, as well as planning school and group tours. Rachel has a M.A. in English from Kansas State University with a certificate in Women’s Studies and was a full-time faculty member and directed the writing center at Oklahoma City Community College. When she is not getting to know visitors, Rachel serves on The Valley Child Development Center Board of Directors as secretary. Rachel loves cooking, yoga, and going to the movies, but she is happiest spending time with her husband and daughter.
