Creative Content Manager, CEHHS Marketing & Communications
Rebekah Goode (she/her) is the Creative Content Manager for the College of Education, Health & Human Sciences' Department of 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 once described as a "wonderful calzone of sunshine." Rebekah received her bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. During and after pursuing her degree, she taught herself graphic design in her free time using every free program she could find online.
Rebekah lives at "the Funny Farm" with her partner and a menagerie of chickens, turkeys, ducks, cats, and a crotchety old dog named Storm. When she's not working, you can usually find her in her backyard with her feathered friends, hunkered over an art project, binge-watching a comfort show, or intentionally lost in the mountains.
