Education

Rebecca began her college career looking to obtain a bachelor's degree in physics and astronomy. During her time in college, she was a research student for NASA's Radio JOVE project, which included writing an article for NASA's Radio JOVE newsletter. She took upper-level courses in a variety of physics and astronomy subjects. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Rebecca took a break from college to take care of her family. She is now returning to college to obtain a bachelor's degree in non-fiction writing. She hopes to use the knowledge she previously obtained from her time studying physics and astronomy to complement the skills she is learning in writing through her work and school.
