Rachel Teter

Rachel Teter

Integrated Marketing Communications 
Arlington, VA
Content Writer on the Marketing team at MetroStar Systems

It’s really exciting to create content for a brand from blogs, social media, marketing campaigns, to internal communication documents. My IMC degree really prepared me to wear a lot of different hats. For other career aspirations, I do hope to publish a nonfiction novel at some point in my life. Finger’s crossed I believe in myself long enough to sit down and write more than three chapters.
Interests: I am currently really interested in cooking, taking long walks, and reading rom-coms.
