After graduating from college, Rebekah moved to Washington, DC, where she worked in the realm of national security (including positions at the Pentagon and National Defense University). Rebekah then went on to earn an MA in international relations at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Relations, ultimately moving to Istanbul to complete her thesis research. She later returned to the East Coast to pursue a second graduate degree in Anthropology at Brown University. It was as a graduate teaching assistant at Brown that Rebekah discovered her longer-term interest lay in curriculum design and teaching. Prior to joining Cate, Rebekah served as Adjunct Faculty, Adjunct Faculty Advisor, and Curriculum Developer for Air University’s “Introduction to Culture” program.

Rebekah now teaches in Cate’s Humanities Department and also offers an advanced senior elective on the “Anthropology of Global Issues” and an interdisciplinary senior elective on “Gender Matters.” In addition, Rebekah is the Technology Educational Specialist and works to promote the integration of technology in the classroom to best serve both students and faculty.

Rebekah lives on Mesa with her husband and two young sons. When they are not immersing themselves in boarding school life, Rebekah and her family enjoy exploring the beaches, foothills, and mountains of Southern California.
