Rachel Dávila Ramírez is a multimedia creator, communications specialist, and podcaster with experience working for higher education institutions, cultural organizations, and museums.
In her professional career, she has developed creative solutions to engage people of all ages in social media communities across the U.S. and worldwide. Rachel has collaborated with faculty, students, thought leaders, and arts and culture professionals on expanding their digital footprint: from adopting marketing strategies to creating meaningful content for internal and external audiences.
Prior to joining the Newmark J-School, Rachel worked for the CUNY Graduate Center and more recently, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. At the museum, she produced the podcast How To Be American, which focuses on immigration and migration stories, and led digital content strategy and multimedia initiatives through animated and video-based work.
Rachel began her career in 2010 as a writer after earning a B.A. in Literature and Creative Writing from the CUNY Baccalaureate Program. After quitting sugar for 2,160 hours and meditating on a Frank Sinatra song for weeks, Rachel thought of a way to marry her visual art and creative sensibilities with her professional work. She has been following that path ever since.
