Proofreader and Copy Editor
Rachel Griffith joined Academic Search in 2022 and is one of the organization’s two proofreaders and copy editors. After graduating from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, Rachel began working as a sports writer and editor. She covered the Auburn Tigers and local high school athletics for the local weekly newspaper, The Auburn Villager, and the online sports news outlet, Rivals.
At 25, she was promoted to editor-in-chief of The Auburn Villager. During her career as a journalist and newspaper editor, Rachel earned numerous Alabama Press Association awards, including first-place honors for Best Sports Page and Best Sports Column.
In 2013, Rachel married an Army officer stationed at nearby Fort Benning, Ga. Since then, the Griffiths have lived in six states and have two sons. Over the years, Rachel continued to hone her writing skills as a marketing copywriter for a sportswear company and a stainless steel drinkware business.
Now a resident of Texas, Rachel is thrilled to bring more than a decade of professional writing and editing experience to Academic Search. She enjoys hiking with her family, experimenting with vegan recipes, and rooting for the Auburn Tigers.
