Connect with Rachel:

Hi! So glad you are interested in DTS! I am very new to DTS and I am getting my first experience of it as an employee. I’m not a student yet, but I am praying about it, and I feel the Lord leading me in that direction. My job is to help process documents that are part of the applications. If you have any questions about the application process, feel free to call us! I really enjoy the encouraging work environment. You can truly tell the Holy Spirit is doing work here. I have felt welcome since my first day, and I know this hospitality translates to the students and prospective students.

Thanks for checking out our website and for you interest in DTS! Hope to see you during a campus visit soon!

What are your hobbies or outside interests?
Spending time in God’s Word, arts and crafts, journaling, SciFi/fantasy books and shows, math, learning.

What made you decide to go to DTS?
I was about to venture into a full time career teaching high school math, but there was a moment where the Lord let me know that wasn’t what He had planned for me at this moment. I say I stumbled upon this job, but I now know that the Lord meant for me to be here. I feel so blessed to work with such amazing and encouraging people!

What do you do on your day off?
My aunt is currently teaching me to make quilts, and it’s especially fun to do in the winter. I have been attending a new church this year and I enjoy going to lots of church activities. Love playing with my black lab, Kobe. Even though he’s 90 lbs, he is still my little puppy.

What are your favorite foods?
I really like Tex-Mex and pretty much any kind of dessert.

What is your favorite television show of all time?
This is an EXTREMELY hard question. I would have to say House and Eureka.

What is the best part about working in the DTS admissions office?
The best part is working with amazing people and getting to read all the salvation stories of applicants.

What is your favorite piece of literature?
Sounds really strange, but I just recently started reading for fun. I really enjoyed Divergent.

What is your favorite musical artist/group/genre of music?
Lately, I listen to a lot of Christian music. I really like the musical style of Hillsong United’s “Zion.” Songs that I really enjoy are ones with resonating lyrics. My favorite song right now is Laura Story’s “I Can Just Be Me.”

Who is the person you admire most and why?
I admire many people that I have met at First Baptist Irving. This last year I have come to know them much better. I admire their willingness to share their testimonies and to show Christ’s love to me.

Who is your favorite Bible character and why?
Peter is my favorite, because he reminds me that even if there are times when we mess up or doubt it’s still possible to have times when we can “walk on water.”

If you could have superhero powers, what would they be?
To be able to read really fast.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I love living in DFW; I don’t think I’ll ever be moving…God willing.
