Rebekah Goode

Creative Content Manager, CEHHS Marketing & Communications


Rebekah Goode (she/her) is the Creative Content Manager for College of Education, Health & Human Sciences Marketing & Communications. You may have heard her referred to as RASL (pronounced “razzle”), a nickname born from the four first letters of her unconventionally long maiden name. Her specialties include graphic design, content writing and editing, social media management, and email marketing. Rebekah has experience working in higher education, K-12 education, non-profit organizations, and government-adjacent companies and is skilled in writing across platforms, audiences, and comprehension levels. She is a passionate advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and accessibility is always at the forefront of her work.

A Jill of all trades and master of some, Rebekah is an artist, self-taught graphic designer, and exclamation point enthusiast. She is a self-proclaimed Appalachian Angel who was once described as a "wonderful calzone of sunshine." Rebekah received her bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Rebekah lives at the "Funny Farm" with her partner and a menagerie feathered and furry animals. When she's not working, you can usually find her in her backyard surrounded by one or twelve animals, hunkered over an art project, eyes glued to her Kindle, or intentionally lost in the mountains.
