Rachel Slattery

Department of New Media

Rachel Slattery is an undergraduate at American University in her senior year. Majoring in Film & Media Arts and French and minoring in Graphic Design, Rachel is interested in web design and development. With a solid base knowledge of content management systems, Rachel considered herself to be an ideal candidate for the New Media Program internship. Interning in the New Media department now, she is responsible for updating and editing already existing pages of the National Museum of American History’s website, as well as creating new content. Her current project is to update the intern section of the website and to create profiles for the Fall and Spring interns.

Rachel hopes to gain knowledge in the fields of employment she wishes to pursue. She also finds the enrichment activities offered to the Smithsonian interns to be extremely exciting as she loves exploring all the wonders that D.C. has to offer.
