Rachel Edmonds ’12
Management and Program Analyst, Social Security Administration
Math Major

Rachel Edmonds is a social science research analyst at the U. S. Social Security Administration (SSA). In this role, Rachel is responsible for maintaining and tracking the predictive models used in SSA’s quick disability process. Prior to SSA, Rachel was a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer where she served in Lesotho as a secondary education volunteer. After completing her service in December 2014, Rachel wanted to pursue a career in monitoring and evaluation. Using her non-competitive eligibility status, which gives return Peace Corps volunteers’ special hiring status for federal employment, in July 2015, Rachel received a position at SSA as a program and management analyst in their Office of Research Evaluation and Statistics. In this role, Rachel gained experience in data analytics and disability research. As a program and management analyst, Rachel realized that she needed to gain more skills in statistical analysis, so in May 2019, Rachel obtained her M.A.S in Spatial Analysis from Johns Hopkins University. Rachel looks forward to gaining more experience in the field of spatial and statistical analysis.
